According to the website Sharlyland, competitive renewable energy zones (CREZ) received the Dallas-based company's transmission project final approval of the public utility Commission of Texas (PUCT) on Dec. 13, 2010 to perform a final route for a Hereford white deer line and on the 22 MarzPUCT approved a Herford Nazareth line 2011, removed the final of two lines of the Hereford.

There are five transmission lines from four collection stations in North Texas. All except a line (the white stag, Silverton line) has been approved.

Sharyland expected to start construction on each line segment within six to nine months after getting approval from PUCT and the acquisition of right of way along the routes. The white deer Hereford line was the first line of PUCT be approved.

"We expect construction of Hereford, white deer line, from the very beginning mid-to late summer of 2011." Sharyland spokesman said Jeanne Phillips.

The rows become the large store in the middle of the grid power running electric reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) the Dallas/Fort Worth, Austin and Houston areas.

"No." The CREZ are only lines are connected to the ERCOT network, the approximately 85% of the electrical load, of the State, including large load centres such as the DFW serves area, Austin, San Antonio and Houston. "Retail customers in the Panhandle are connected with an interstate transmission system known as the Southwest power pool." Question whether all the energy would be used by the rows in the State at any time in the future, said Phillips.

The scenario has chosen PUCT for the transmission lines will add network 18,456 MW of wind energy in the ERCOT.

Hereford economic development Corporation Executive Director Sheila quirk believes that the effects of transmission through Hereford will be good for the city.

"I think it is a big deal for Hereford and Deaf Smith County." The possibilities for the landowners who have can bind farm development groups, for them to the substation wind. "Only the effects which is there for our taxation [on our community], units have." Quirk, said.

Quirk also believes that building positive will have economy is in the rows on the Hereford, while construction crews.

"It will have not anything but positive impact on our community for the simple reason, that teams are building by the building and the lines create substations, they will be $ in Hereford expenditure." Quirk, said.

It is expected that all transmission and collection will stations until end of 2013
