SUGAR LAND--January 29, 2013--Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas)--Transmission lines are among the most intricate energy projects and take a long time to get to the construction phase. Lengthy permitting procedures, endless environmental issues, not-in-my-backyard reactions from landowners--the list goes on. In spite of these difficulties, U.S. transmission-related spending is certain to increase in 2013. Industrial Info is estimating that 47 projects worth about $11 billion will kick-off construction this year.
