EA-1864: Finding of No Significant Impact

Electrical District 5 - Palo Verde Hub Project

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Western Area Power Administration (Western) along with southern Arizona electrical providers propose to acquire transmission line rights, build and operate a new transmission segment, upgrade an existing line segment, and expand three substation facilities between the Palo Verde Hub Substation near the community of Arlington and the Electrical District 5 (ED5) Substation near Picacho Peak in Maricopa and Pinal Counties, Arizona (the ED-5-PVH Project).The Proposed Action would provide transmission access to a major market hub (PVH) and could enhance the viability of renewable resource development in Pinal County. Specifically, this project is located in and would provide a tie between the Western Renewable Energy Zones AZ_WE and AZ_SO.
