Enabling Low-Cost Clean Energy and Reliable Service Through Better Transmission Benefits Analysis: A Case Study of MISO’s Long Range Transmission Planning
The Midcontinent Independent System Operator’s (MISO) Board of Directors recently approved 18 new transmission lines, representing the largest transmission expansion to enable low-cost clean energy in U.S. history. Join ACORE and Grid Strategies for the release of their latest report, which examines how MISO’s evaluation of the benefits of transmission was critical in enabling that expansion. The report also compares the benefits MISO used with those suggested in the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s (FERC) Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NOPR) on transmission planning. Comments to FERC on the NOPR are due August 18th.
