See more details here on creating a new project and consider the following scenarios:
Searching for land around DG subs? --> Substation project type
Searching for land around DG lines? --> Transmission project type
Searching for land around both OR searching for land around lines but within some distance of a known sub? --> Pick either substation or transmission line project type
Select desired DG substations or lines as primary assets when creating a project using one of the following methods:
Use existing assets (substations and lines)
EIA dataset comes pre-downloaded with each state.
Most of the EIA substations and lines are 69 kV+, though there can be lower voltage subs and lines.
Copy lines/substations from hosting capacity map -- copy three-phase line routes from publicly available hosting capacity map layers
Manually add assets - trace/draw missing DG substations and lines to subsequently site around
Use Anderson Optimization DG data for siting - please reach out to your account manager if you're interested in purchasing DG data from AO
Search for land using one of these standard parcel search methods
Search for land along lines within certain distance of substation (combo buffer w/intersect tool)
Search for land around both substations AND lines on the same project (combo buffer tool)
