SUGAR LAND--July 12, 2021--Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas)--A wildfire in Southern Oregon is wreaking havoc on a critical power transmission corridor linking Oregon and California.
The Bootleg Fire, which has grown to more than 153,000 acres southern Oregon's Fremont-Winema national forest, has reduced California's available power by as much as 5,500 megawatts (MW). The blaze has impacted the California-Oregon Intertie, also known as Path 66. This is a corridor of three parallel 500-kilovolt (kV) transmission lines linking the California and Oregon power grids.
