The Midwestern Governors Association (MGA) built on the Grid Security and Modernization project from 2016-2017. The goal of the phase 2 of this effort was to help states better understand the issues surrounding the fast-changing nature of the electric sector including pressures on the existing business utility model as more distributed generation and customer choice impact the traditional model.
Through a series of in-person meetings and webinars, the MGA drew on the best thinking and practices from across the country-including throughout the Midwest-to inform state regulatory and policy discussions on the future of the electric grid. In addition, the MGA worked to identify the issues Midwestern states need more attention under the broad umbrella of grid security and modernization, in an effort to tackle these issues before there is an immediate need.
