The CAC was convened in 2007 to analyze and plan for the long-term electrical needs of the Wood River Valley. The proposed redundant power line is the first of several projects to come from the plan. Other projects for the Hailey-to-Shoshone area are in the early stages, however much maintenance has already been completed on the Midpoint-Hailey line and the King-Hailey line, which also support the valley.
