Transmission lines and agriculture
The photos below show agricultural operations near existing transmission lines in Idaho and Oregon. The area under a transmission line (including the easement) can be used for agriculture, grazing and other purposes. The transmission lines shown range from 138 kilovolts (kV) to 500 kV.
Idaho Power coordinates the location of transmission line structures to reduce potential impacts to farmlands.
Idaho Power can often vary the location and design of a transmission line to accommodate irrigation system operations.
Towers can be sited to avoid irrigation pivots and be located outside of a pivot-irrigation system’s spray area.
Idaho Power can often vary the location or height of towers, or the span length between structures, to accommodate plowing and harvesting.
