Construction begins this month on the 12-mile, 230-kilovolt double-circuit transmission line that will transport the electricity.

BPA will work with PPM Energy to integrate up to 300 megawatt s from its Klondike III wind project and with Portland General Electric to integrate up to 400 MW from the Biglow Canyon Wind Farm. A new 230-kV yard is already under construction at BPA's existing John Day 500-kV substation as part of this wind integration project.
