Arizona Public Service Co. Key Developments

BLM Approves Construction on APS’s Morgan to Sun Valley Transmission Line

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has approved APS’s request to construct the final section of a 500-kilovolt (kV) line on BLM land that will complete an extra-high voltage transmission loop around the Valley and improve reliability for APS customers. The Morgan to Sun Valley 500-kV transmission line extends 38 miles, starting at the Sun Valley substation near the Sun Valley Parkway north of Tonopah, and ending at the Morgan substation just south of State Route 74 near Lake Pleasant Regional Park. In addition to improving reliability for the fast-growing populace in the area, it also will increase economic development opportunities for the state. The project is expected to be under construction until spring 2018 and to be in service in time to increase summer reliability for customers that same year.
