The electricity transmission grid is a large, complicated machine of extraordinary significance. A strong, resilient transmission grid provides reliable, low-cost electricity and is vital to the economic vitality of our states. While individual states and their utilities and stakeholders make decisions regarding their local electricity generation sources and distribution network, the transmission grid requires the multi-state and regional collaboration.
Governor Reynolds’ agenda focuses on creating a more secure and modern electric grid in the Midwest. The effort was initiated because of the promise, and the related problems, in delivering more energy from source to load (i.e., energy consumers) in the region. Under Governor Reynolds, the association, will bring together the energy policy and utility regulatory staffs, as well as, the Midcontinent Independent System Operator (MISO) and stakeholders, to establish a long-term transmission grid vision for the region.
