WESTMINSTER, Colo. (AP) – The board of the Tri-State Generation and Transmission Association has approved investing $142 million to improve and expand electrical transmission lines.

The budget includes $2.6 million for development of new technologies, as Tri-State works to improve management of greenhouse-gas emissions.

The overall investment marks the first phase of a 10-year, $1.9 billion capital improvement plan for the association, which serves 44 cooperatives and public power districts in Colorado, New Mexico and Wyoming.

Tri-State has already launched several transmission projects, including a venture with Xcel Energy to construct power lines from the San Luis Valley to Pueblo, plus lines from New Mexico into southwest Colorado.
