Transmission Energy

SCPPA's Transmission Projects


Power Transmission is the movement of power from the point of generation to the point of consumption. Power transmission is typically achieved through use of overhead lines. Transformers are used to step up voltage levels to minimize resistive loss during transmission, or step down voltage levels for safe consumption at the final consumer destination. Transmission is critical to providing clean energy to member utilities reaching out to clean geothermal, hydro, wind and solar resources located in the western United States.
