Massive Changes To The RGV’s Power Grid Benefit Valley’s Electric Customers

Estimated $1 billion investment from American Electric Power (AEP) Texas, Electric Transmission Utilities (ETT) and Sharyland Utilities

Major changes to the Rio Grande Valley power grid are coming, and power generators and electricity transmission companies anticipate they’ll bring a new playing field.

With an estimated $1 billion investment from American Electric Power (AEP) Texas, Electric Transmission Utilities (ETT) and Sharyland Utilities, a string of 150- to 200-foot tall, high-voltage power lines will soon be part of the Valley landscape, as construction begins on a 345-volt line cross-Valley line.

“This project will greatly impact not only MVEC members but all Valley electric customers,” said Phillip Amaya of the Magic Valley Electricity Cooperative, technical services division manager.
