Dear Joe,
It was nice to speak with you this morning.  Thanks for fielding the calls from various folks about the Plains & Eastern Clean Line.
As you mentioned, our website contains a lot of information about the project, including the status of the route and overall timeline
The Plains & Eastern Clean Line is undergoing an environmental review under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), led by the US Department of Energy (DOE) and in coordination with the Southwestern Power Administration.
No decisions have been made regarding the final location of a route.  In the first quarter of 2013, the DOE presented for public comment the Network of Potential Routes, a series of one-mile wide corridors.  Comments received by the DOE during their public scoping process will be used to modify and refine the Network of Potential Routes to routes that are approximately 1,000 feet wide. Clean Line anticipates that an applicant proposed route and alternative routes will be published in the fourth quarter of 2014, concurrent with the release of the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). The DOE will hold public meetings following the release of the Draft EIS and solicit public comments. The DOE is expected to identify a preferred route for the project in 2015 with the release of the Final EIS. The actual easement required for the project is expected to be approximately 150 to 200 feet wide. Ultimately, the Plains & Eastern Clean Line will utilize only one route.
If the regulatory schedule continues as planned, the project could begin construction in 2016 and begin delivering electricity as early as 2018.
It is possible that wind farms could be developed in Texas, Beaver, and Cimarron counties in Oklahoma, as well as in the Texas Panhandle, to access the Plains & Eastern Clean Line transmission project to deliver their power to markets in Arkansas, Tennessee, and other states in the Mid-South and Southeast. 
The ultimate location and configuration of these wind farms won’t be known until the regulatory review for the project has been completed, and then all the commercial negotiations are completed.

Thanks again, and please feel free to reach out to me if you have any additional questions.
Christopher Hardy

  • According to preliminary data from the Oklahoma Mesonet, the mild first half and summery second half of the month combined to produce a statewide average temperature of 80.6 degrees, two-tenths of a degree above normal and the 57th coolest August since records began in 1895.
  • The climatological summer ended as the 26th coolest on record with a June-August average temperature of 78.7 degrees, nearly a degree below normal.
  • The statewide average precipitation total of 1.4 inches was half of the normal total for August and the 12th driest since records began in 1895.
  • The Mesonet site at Porter led the state with 4.1 inches and several other stations across northern Oklahoma reported more than 3 inches, but 50 Mesonet stations recorded less than an inch for the entire month.
  • The summer as a whole was still wetter than normal, however, with a statewide average of 11.4 inches, 1.6 inches above normal to rank as the 34th wettest on record.

 

New manager takes over Dunes;

Plans to work promoting park

                        

Heath Noyes is the new manager of the Beaver Dunes Park. He started his new job on August 25.

Noyes graduated from Vici High School in 1996 and earned his college degree in accounting in 2006 from Northwestern Oklahoma State University. Noyes worked for the Woodward County Sheriff’s Department from 2002 through 2006 and most recently worked for the Oklahoma State Fire Marshal’s office for the past eight years.

Noyes is also a veteran of the United States Marine Corp. and has one overseas tour of duty. He expressed excitement for his new job in Beaver.

"The key is to promote, promote and promote. Not enough people have heard of the Beaver Dunes," Noyes said. "My family really enjoys the area, and wee are excited to be here."

Noyes, on Monday, was working to place picnic tables in the ORV area and also plans to install some watchable wildlife stations in the coming weeks. He has many other great ideas for the park as well.

Heath and his wife Angela have six kids: Brendan Noyes; Kadyn Noyes; Addyson Noyes; Lauren Noyes; Austin Solo and Jordan Solo.
