Underground transmission power line will utilize railroad right-of-way

Direct Connect Development Company has begun the filing process with the Iowa Utility Board for the SOO Green HVDC Link transmission project that will be located underground within the Canadian Pacific Railroad right-of-way through Clayton County — including Guttenberg — and seven other Iowa counties.

SOO Green is a proposed high voltage direct current (HVDC) transmission line that will run underground along existing transportation corridors from Mason City to Chicago. The project will deliver 2,100 megawatts of wind energy resources in Iowa to communities in the eastern United States that have a strong demand for clean, reliable energy.
