August 2019 Update:

In a letter to the Bureau of Land Management Taos Field Office, dated Aug. 2, 2019, Verde Transmission, LLC, has requested its application be withdrawn for a right-of-way (ROW) grant for the Verde Transmission Project.  Verde no longer intends to seek approval of its Application for Transportation and Utility Systems and Facilities on Federal Lands, filed on July 31, 2015.  The 345-kilovolt transmission line, as proposed, would have originated at the Norton Substation in Santa Fe County and terminated at the Ojo Substation in Rio Arriba County, crossing BLM administered lands, State lands, private lands and the Pueblo of Pojoaque, Ohkay Owingeh and Pueblo of Santa Clara.

The BLM notified Verde that it would begin proper administrative procedures to terminate the ROW application processing and close the case file following all needed requirements.

The BLM thanks all those who provided comments and participated in this process.
