Energy Gateway South Transmission Line Construction Approved

Project expected to create more than a thousand jobs.

President Biden’s administration has announced the approval of the construction of the Energy Gateway South Transmission line in Wyoming. Officials call it a significant milestone in modernizing the power structure in the American West. The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) stated that the project “will support approximately 1,325 construction jobs and help integrate up to 2,000 megawatts of new renewable energy resources into the grid.“

“BLM-managed public lands will continue to serve an important role in modernizing the nation’s infrastructure as we advance President Biden’s goal of achieving a net-zero economy by 2050,” said Director Tracy Stone-Manning. “As we build toward a clean energy future, we must make sure we do so responsibly. Approving large-scale transmission projects like this are key to bringing renewable energy online, while creating good-paying union jobs and helping bolster community resilience against the climate crisis.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For U.S. Bureau of Land Management and Energy officials who are evaluating and working to resolve electricity needs of states in the West.
  • For Director Stone-Manning to be wise as she heads her agency.
  • For Secretary Haaland to seek the Lord’s guidance as she oversees the various agencies of the Interior Department.
