At present, there is no continuously operative electric power interconnection across the US-Mexico border in New Mexico or Arizona. On the Mexican side, the Comisión Federal de Electricidad (CFE) serves the electrical demand mainly from transmission circuits from southern Sonora. The rapid industrial growth in the southwest border region, on the US and Mexican sides of the border, suggests that an electrical connection across the border would enhance efficiency, reliability, and economy of operation. Electrical infrastructure is an important part of the local economy. A high voltage DC (HVDC) connection is proposed and studied.

of the US
Transborder connections in Texas are low power and all ACDCAC ties because the Mexican AC system is asynchronous to the US AC system
The Baja California system is connected directly to the US near San Diego California – and this system is synchronous to the US system.
