Path 27 is the designation of a bipolar HVDC transmission line between an Intermountain Power Agency power plant in Utah situated at 39°30′2″N 112°34′51″W / 39.50056°N 112.58083°W and the Adelanto static inverter plant near Adelanto, California at 34°33′4″N 117°26′14″W / 34.55111°N 117.43722°W. The Intermountain is a bipolar overhead line 488 miles long, and can transfer a maximum power of 2,400 megawatts at ±500 kV. The part of the line that travels through the Mojave Desert is followed by many other AC 500 kV lines and Interstate 15. The Pacific DC Intertie is the other HVDC line serving Los Angeles. This HVDC line is owned and operated by the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power. HVDC lines such as the Intermountain line and the Pacific DC Intertie can be distinguished by having two transmission wires, rather than the three necessary for transmission of three phase AC power.
