Sponsored by

The group is leasing 1,754 acres from the Utah School and Institutional Trust Land Administration (SITLA). The location is ideal as the infrastructure includes a HVDC transmission line going directly to California.

The project has conducted the required biological study, cultural survey, entered the interconnection queue, is working with Millard County on the conditional use permit and is in the Utah Alternative Energy Development Incentive (AEDI) application process.
