Lamar-Vilas (SB100)

Project Map

The Lamar-Vilas project was evaluated as part of the Lamar-Front Range Plan. Lamar-Vilas would consist of approximately 60 miles of high-voltage transmission from the existing Lamar Substation, near Lamar, Colorado to the existing Vilas Substation in Baca County, Colorado. The project would provide access to additional resources in Energy Resource Zone 3, and could provide an opportunity for development of renewable energy facilities in Baca County. The project could not accommodate any new generation unless the Lamar-Front Range Transmission Project was also in place. As this project is dependent upon the Lamar-Front Range project, the Lamar-Vilas has the same status as that project.
