Description (excerpt):

Decisions on where to site transmission lines must balance the needs of the electric system with other uses of land. States have evolved several ways to organize this important decision-making process. This mini guide outlines the interests that must be balanced, organizational approaches being used, and insights into different state processes. Interviews with key agency leads and staff involved in the day-to-day work of siting transmission lines offer observations about the relative consistency in responsibilities and approaches across different institutional structures.
