Sharyland DC Tie
Commissioned into service in October 2007, the Sharyland DC Tie is a 150 MW High Voltage Direct Current Transmission Interconnection located along the Rio Grande border connecting at a point near the cities of Mission, Texas, and Reynosa, Tamaulipas.
This open access cross-border tie is the first of its kind to support commercial business activity and to provide emergency power with Texas and Mexico.
Its technology allows for bi-directional flow of electricity between both grids, thereby allowing each grid to rely on the other in times of peak demand.
Not only will this strengthen the stability of both grids, it has the potential to foster an international wholesale market that could bring together power generators and commercial customers on both sides of the border.
