Description (excerpt):

Clean Line Energy Partners is developing four large transmission projects to connect areas of the country that have excellent wind and solar energy resources to load centers several hundred miles away that can use the power. The company will use high-voltage direct current (HVDC) technology to minimize energy losses and have a smaller footprint compared to alternating current technology.
