Overview

The Plains & Eastern Clean Line is an approximately 700-mile direct current (HVDC) transmission line that will deliver wind energy from the Oklahoma Panhandle region to utilities and customers in the Mid-South and southeastern United States.

Just as trains carry cattle, wheat, cotton and other goods from rural areas to urban centers, the Plains & Eastern Clean Line will carry renewable energy from the Great Plains east to markets that have a strong demand for low-cost, clean power.
