OPPD is hard at work putting up new transmission lines in southwest Sarpy County, part of the Sarpy Southwest Transmission Project. The lines will go to Turtle Creek Station, one of two new natural gas plants being built as part of OPPD’s Power with Purpose project. The work supports both Power with Purpose goals as well as the rapid economic growth occurring in Sarpy County. Through Power with Purpose, OPPD is pursuing the addition of up to 600 megawatts (MW) of solar generation, backed up by 600 MW from modern natural gas plants. In the video below, watch as portions of the lines are strung with help from a helicopter, which increases the efficiency and safety of the project.
