Interior Advances Proposals for Transmission Projects

Environmental reviews of 2 clean energy grid additions begin.

The Department of the Interior (DOI) announced that it is taking the next step with two transmission projects that will connect Nevada to a larger green energy network. The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has initiated the environmental review for the Greenlink North project, beginning a 45-day public comment period for the 232-mile-long transmission line.

The bureau has also published a draft of an environmental impact statement for the Greenlink West project, which is slated to connect Las Vegas and Reno to 4 gigawatts of renewable energy with 450 miles of transmission lines.

“Our public lands have a critical role to play in the clean energy transition,” said Bureau of Land Management Director Tracy Stone-Manning. “In order to ensure healthy public lands in the future, the BLM must help lead the way on addressing climate change.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Director Stone-Manning as she heads the Bureau of Land Management.
  • For Secretary Haaland to seek the Lord’s direction as she leads the Interior Department.
  • For administration officials as they conduct environmental reviews of proposed renewable energy projects.
