Clean Line Energy to host open houses in Tipton County next month

Star Staff Reports
Plains and Eastern Clean Line LLC signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Fluor 
Corporation designating Fluor to provide development 
support and engineering, procurement and construction services (EPC) 
for the first phase of the Plains & Eastern Clean 
Line transmission line project.  As part of the MOU, Fluor—with Pike Electric Corporation as a subcontractor to Fluor—
will provide initial permitting and EPC development support services for the Plains & Eastern Clean Line.   
The MOU contemplates that after the 
project has received all permits and regulatory and financial approvals, Fluor and Pike 
will provide the full EPC services for the first phase of the approximately 800-mile overhead high-voltage 
direct current transmission (HVDC) transmission line, which 
will allow for the delivery of 3,500 megawatts of power and interconnect approximately $7 billion of new clean energy projects. 
Clean Line believes that new electric transmission and wind generation in such close proximity to 
Oklahoma, Arkansas and Tennessee manufacturers will increase 
business opportunities for companies in those states. Clean Line and Fluor are committed 
to using qualified local and regional contractors under the proposed EPC arrangement. 

CLEAN LINE ENERGY SIGNS MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING WITH TENNESSEE VALLEY AUTHORITY
Clean Line signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Tennessee Valley Authority TVA. The purpose of the MOU is to identify 
the full range of benefits that high voltage direct current (HVDC) transmission projects may provide to TVA’s stakeholders. 
This new MOU takes Clean Line a step closer to connecting low-cost clean energy to consumers across the Mid-South and Southeast regions. 
TVA is a national leader in the US utility sector and a key driver for continued economic growth in Tennessee and throughout the Southeast.


Memphis, Light, Gas and Water (MLGW) Division Board of Commissioners passed a resolution unanimously that supports the development 
and implementation of clean energy transported by HVDC transmission to western Tennessee. Working with MLGW—the Memphis area municipal utility and 
TVA's largest customer—Plains & Eastern Clean Line transmission project will build on Memphis’ heritage as “America’s distribution center,” 
and help position Memphis as a 21st century hub for clean energy distribution in the Southeast.


These two milestones highlight growing interest in facilitating the use of cost effective, clean energy sources. Leaders in the Southeast are 
taking concrete steps to enhance the region’s economic prospects and competitiveness. The Plains & Eastern Clean Line transmission 
project will bring significant public benefits including improving energy security, enabling the development of thousands of megawatts of 
clean power, creating thousands of jobs, and providing cleaner air and water.
