Transmission projects could break through borders of power-independent Texas

Texas, long proud of its independence in the world of power, is looking at a future that may include a new level of connectivity. To the west, the Tres Amigas project in New Mexico seeks to link the nation's grids and may begin construction this year. To the east, the Southern Cross transmission project last month received a federal endorsement of a plan to provide a Texas connection with the U.S. Southeast. While backers of both proposals will need to firm up financing, the possibilities are unmistakable: Texas borders may not seem as unreachable to those on the outside or as unbreakable to those on the inside, even if the state remains a relative island in the nation's electricity system.
