CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) -- A study group has released preliminary recommendations on ways to export more electric power from the Rocky Mountain states.
Wyoming Governor Dave Freudenthal and former Utah Governor Mike Leavitt created the Rocky Mountain Area Transmission Study in fall 2003.
The goal is to identify the most critical electricity projects needed in Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Utah and Wyoming -- and examine the most economic ways to create more transmission lines.
A final report from the study group is expected to be completed in late August.
