Project Details

This project involved placing more than 31,000 yards of concrete, raising 831 structures and stringing nearly 7 million feet of wire to construct a 345-kV, double-circuit line stretching 108 miles from Wichita to Medicine Lodge, Kansas, and on to an interconnection point at the Oklahoma border.

Work was completed ahead of schedule and under budget. The Prairie Wind Transmission project was built to reduce transmission congestion, increase the grid’s ability to carry wind power across Kansas and support the growth of wind energy in the state.
