The proposed Xcel Energy Cunningham-Monument 115 kV transmission line project consists of about seven miles of new 115 kV transmission line between the Cunningham Substation about 12 miles west of Hobbs, New Mexico and the Monument Substation located approximately three miles northwest of Monument, New Mexico.
The project will enhance electric reliability and create capacity for load growth in the area.
On January 12, 2016 the Southwest Power Pool approved a Notice to Construct the project.
The Cunningham-Monument 115 kV transmission line project is expected to be in-service in 2021. The estimated cost of the project is $6 million.
