JEDI Transmission Line Model

The Jobs and Economic Development Impacts (JEDI) Transmission Line Model allows users to estimate economic development impacts associated with transmission line projects.

This Transmission Line model requires a few additional user inputs:

  • Transmission Line Type
  • Line Length
  • Terrain TypeM
  • Right-of-Way Characteristics.

Results are presented in the same manner as those in other JEDI models. This allows the transmission line JEDI model to be used by itself or in conjunction with electricity generation JEDI models. As with all JEDI models, reasonable default values are provided. Individual projects may vary and when possible, project specific data should be used to obtain the best estimate of economic development impacts.
