Access initiative

Access Initiative

  • Goal: Reduce delivered cost of energy to Wisconsin consumers by . . .

    • reducing system congestion

    • improving access to additional energy sources

  • Solution: Add an additional 345 kV circuit to the existing 345 kV line (W4) between Rockdale SS (Dane) and Paddock SS (Rock)

  • Project estimated costs (2010):

    • Preferred route: $132.7 million

    • Alternate route: $210.8 million

Dane county projects update

Dane County Projects Update


Background

Background

  • Dane County has experienced major economic growth in the last 25 years.

  • Three of Wisconsin’s top 5 fastest growing municipalities are in Dane County (Verona, Cottage Grove and Sun Prairie). (Includes municipalities with a population of 5,000 or more in 2005; data source: U.S. Census Bureau.)

  • Dane County’s electricity consumption is expected to continue to increase through year 2020.

  • System-reliability models indicate that new transmission lines will be needed in Dane County by 2008 and every few years thereafter to keep pace with this growing demand.

  • ATC proposed five projects to deal with this growth


Public outreach

Public Outreach

  • Extensive outreach on all Dane County projects

    • Energy Initiative Study – supported a group of stakeholders and traditional interveners in review of Dane County’s transmission needs

    • Project communications, open houses

    • Ongoing consultation with regulatory agencies

    • Extensive media relations

    • Polling

    • Advertising
