Sempra's Other New Transmission Line

Yesterday we noted that opponents of Sunrise Powerlink were calling BS when Sempra stated publicly that it had no intention of hooking the 500kv transmission line into Mexico.

I guess Sempra was telling the truth because today we find out that the company has filed for permit to build an enitely separate transmission line into Mexico.

This one would hook into the Southwest Powerlink, which runs along I-8 and it would connect to a wind farm.
