Transmission Development Activities and Resource Requirements

Energy transmission projects can have a variety of effects on the environment as a result of activities occurring during different phase of development. Most effects occur from the extensive amount of land disturbance and modification, due primarily to the length of the right-of-way required to transmit the energy.

Follow the links below to learn more about transmission facilities, and how their siting, construction, operation, and decommissioning can give rise to environmental impacts.
