The role of electric transmission in meeting society's infrastructure needs is well known in the electric industry.

What is not known is the expansion of alternatives and transmission technologies that are already here. Distributed energy resources when aggregated are a powerful resource for reliability purposes. Transmission makes that happen.

This blog lays out all the moving parts in Minnesota sector very well.

Not only can transmission be the key to unlock more clean energy on the grid, but think of the jobs and economic stimulus created at a time when the country desperately needs it!

Thanks Rao for your post.  It is great to see the commitment of Mid-western utilities towards the transition to clean energy; certainly federal funds that can enable investment in transmission and grid modernization will be crucial for this region where resilience is key, especially in the freezing winter, and will drive the transition to renewables to fight climate crisis.
