Tres Amigas LLC, the company that is working on the interconnection of the U.S.' three discrete power grids, is working on a plan to add underground high-voltage direct-current (HVDC) electric transmission infrastructure in New Mexico.

The project could connect energy resources in the Four Corners region not only to the West, but to the Eastern and Texas Interconnections. Phase two of the project would connect southern New Mexico with a new HVDC connection from Eddy County to Tres Amigas at Clovis, N.M. Collectively, the project is to be called the New Mexico Express.

"The ultimate completion of these buried transmission lines will open many doors for the development and market outreach of the vast New Mexico energy resources," says Phillip Harris, president and CEO of Tres Amigas.
