Interconnection of the Southpoint Power Plant with the Wester Area Power Administration's Parker-Davis No. 1 and No. 2, 230-kilovolt Transmission Lines
Western has determined that no significant environmental impacts will result from construction, operation and maintenance of Calpine Corporation’s Southpoint Power Plant, the two natural gas pipelines, or the approximately 7 miles of high voltage transmission lines, or from the upgrade of the Parker-Davis No. 1 230-kilovolt (kV) transmission line. Therefore, Western has decided to provide an interconnection with the plant and Western’s transmission system in west central Arizona. However, Calpine has yet to obtain a permit from the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) for the construction of the two natural gas pipelines. Western will reconsider this decision if Calpine fails to obtain the permit from the BLM.
