CREZ - Competitive Renewable Energy Zone
The Public Utility Commission of Texas (PUCT) has designated Sharyland Utilities to construct approximately 300 miles in new electric transmission facilities, including four collection stations and five 345 kilovolt (kV) transmission line segments, located in the Texas Panhandle and South Plains as part of the Competitive Renewable Energy Zone (CREZ) process.
Established by the Texas Legislature in 2005, the CREZ process was created to help encourage the development of wind generation in Texas by facilitating the construction of needed electrical transmission lines to the areas of the state determined to have superior wind resources.
Sharyland Utilities has long been an active and engaged participant throughout the CREZ process, and this designation by the PUCT represents a great first step in Sharyland Utilities’ continued commitment to meeting the transmission needs of the Texas Panhandle and South Plains for the long term.
