RAWLINS, Wyo. (AP) -- Officials with Rocky Mountain Power have set a meeting for Tuesday in Medicine Bow to discuss two possible routes for the proposed Gateway West transmission line.

Company spokeswoman Margaret Oler says the meeting is part of an effort by Rocky Mountain Power to be as open and clear as possible.

The event will start with an open house at 4 p.m. at the Medicine Bow Senior Center, followed by time for questions.

One proposed route for the first section of line would go from Windstar to Aeolus. Another would go from Windstar to Carbon County northeast of Medicine Bow.

Rocky Mountain Power and Idaho Power are hoping to build the line to carry green power from wind farms across Wyoming to a substation west of Boise, Idaho.
