What is unique in this MTEP 2020 is the total cost of the local Transmission Owner (TO) planning criteria driven projects.
If MISO caught headlines in 2011 with approval of $5.2 billion Multi-Value Projects (MVP) - this MTEP2020 costs of $4 billion comes close to that $5 billion price tag.
Does this mean future MTEPs will have a recurring higher cost portfolio of projects? Because 36% of the projects in MISO's expansion plan are based on age and condition of transmission infrastructure. Almost 40% of the projects were for reliability reasons called baseline reliability projects.
One can only hope incumbent transmission owners are looking at Alternatives to Transmission Solutions and other technologies including distributed energy resources, when the time comes to replace transmission lines.
