Hampton Substation & Prairie Island-Blue Lake Xmsn

This is a test…  Notice anything odd here?


Or more correctly, notice anything missing here?  Hint… see that green line???

You can find the full map at this CapX 2020 link!

All right, here’s the answer:

The northwestern terminus of the La Crosse Project wlll be the new Hampton Substation, which will connect the new 345 kV transmission line to the existing Prairie Island – Blue Lake 345 1cV transmission line in the vicinity of Hampton, Minnesota. From the new Hampton Substation, the new 345 kV transmission line will be routed to a new substation (North Rochester Substation). This segment of the La Crosse Project will be approximately 40 to 50 miles long and will be constructed using a double circuit compatible configuration.

Taken from this Rate filing from South Dakota:

SD Rate Filing – see p. 4-5

This same document was filed somewhere in MN, there have been so many that I can’t remember… perhaps the CoN docket?
