Building Transmission for California's Central Valley

DATC/Western Area Power Administration Project

California’s Central Valley is one of the most productive agricultural regions in the world, producing more than half of the fruits, vegetables and nuts grown in the United States. The farmers there need large quantities of water, and to get that water to their fields they need electricity. The Western Area Power Administration, in partnership with the Duke-American Transmission Company, is developing a new high-voltage transmission line to connect a local pumping and generating plant to the end users – farmers and Central Valley water agencies.
