NV Energy and LS Power hope to build north-south electricity transmission lines in Nevada. A north-south line would give the owner the ability to secure contracts with renewable energy developers who will eventually build solar arrays, wind farms and geothermal plants across the state. LS Power has already secured the permits it needs to build a line and says it will start construction next summer. NV Energy will present its plan to regulators next month. Meanwhile, some observers say two lines are not necessary and could result in higher costs for consumers.
