BPA is proposing to build a new 115-kilovolt (kV) transmission line and a new 138/115-kV substation, called Hooper Springs Substation in Caribou County, Idaho. The new transmission line and substation are needed to improve voltage stability on the transmission grid and to meet future load growth in southeast Idaho and the Jackson Hole area. BPA is requesting comments about potential environmental impacts that we should consider as we prepares the EIS for the proposed project. You can submit comments or suggestions on the proposed transmission line routing, potential impacts of the proposal and potential mitigation measures.
