Tres Amigas, LLC has announced that it has submitted filings with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) requesting regulatory approvals needed to move forward with the Tres Amigas SuperStation, America’s first renewable energy transmission hub.
The SuperStation will be located in Clovis, New Mexico and will for the first time provide the capability to transfer thousands of megawatts of power between the three US power grids known as the Eastern Interconnection, the Western Interconnection and the Texas Interconnection. Similar to highway rotaries or roundabouts used for traffic flow control, multiple power transmission lines from each of the Interconnections will feed power into and out of the Tres Amigas SuperStation through Superconductor Electricity Pipelines. Tres Amigas will help ensure the efficient and reliable flow of power from multiple generation sources in all three power grids to customers across a wide area of the US.
