AMARILLO, Texas (AP) — Crews have completed a transmission line between the Texas Panhandle and Oklahoma as the first of two 345-kilovolt projects relying on expanded wind-generated power.

Xcel Energy officials on Thursday announced the 130-mile line between Hitchland, Texas, and Woodward, Oklahoma, is part of a $64 million partnership with Oklahoma Gas and Electric Company.

The other joint Xcel Energy-OG&E project, scheduled to be finished this fall, will be built from near Abernathy, Texas, to Woodward — a nearly 200-mile stretch.

David Hudson, who's CEO of Southwestern Public Service Company, an Xcel Energy company, says the new lines provide more export capacity for energy generated from area wind farms.
