The collection portion moves among and around the CREZs collecting the power generated by the windfarms that will be located within the numerous CREZs. Pickins' wind farm was or is to be located in the Roberts County CREZ.
The cross state portion are two lines, one to DFW, and the other to San Antonio Austin.
The distribution portion would be those lines that split off the main trunk lines that distribute the power to various areas around DFW and SAA.
Currently the project is in site approval with the PUC and the projected completion date is in 2013.
Thanks for the excellent information. That caused me to do a little research on my own. It seems that things are moving along pretty well and, as you said, have been in the works for several years. It seems the only possible speed bumps ahead are any actions by environmental groups to impede the progress.
The only thing that might appease them is to put the windmills themselves underground. :-)
