NextEra Energy Transmission awarded Wolf Creek-Blackberry


JUNO BEACH – NextEra Energy Transmission, LLC, a subsidiary of NextEra Energy, Inc., announced that it has been awarded the Wolf Creek-Blackberry transmission line project by the Southwest Power Pool (SPP).

The SPP Board of Directors approved an industry expert panel (IEP) recommendation for NextEra Energy Transmission Southwest, LLC to build the Wolf Creek-Blackberry project. The IEP evaluated this project through its competitive transmission owner selection process, which is required under the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s (FERC) Order No. 1000 for certain transmission projects.

“We are pleased to have been awarded the Wolf Creek-Blackberry project by SPP,” said Eric Gleason, president of NextEra Energy Transmission. “This project award furthers our goal of creating America’s leading competitive transmission company and is consistent with our strategy of adding high-quality regulated assets to our portfolio.”

NextEra Energy Transmission will construct a new approximate 94-mile, 345-kilovolt transmission line from the Wolf Creek substation in Kansas to the Blackberry substation in Missouri to address economic needs in the region. 

The project requires regulatory approval in both Kansas and Missouri. Assuming timely regulatory approvals, the project is expected to be online in January 2025.
