Northeast New Mexico is an area rich in renewable energy resources.
To increase access to those resources, Lucky Corridor LLC, owned
by Ameren Transmission, is proposing to construct a new, approximately
65-mile 345kV transmission line. The development of transmission
infrastructure is a critical link to transform New Mexico and our
nation’s transition to a clean 21st century economy. The Vista Trail
Transmission Line Project will increase transmission capacity, bolster
New Mexico’s energy transition, and spur economic growth by further
investing in New Mexico’s $3 billion wind economy. Other economic benefits
include job creation, generation of state and
local tax revenue, and real estate payments to landowners.
