"While there’s significant complexity to some of the potential planning reforms, one technology stands out as a straightforward way to make better use of existing transmission corridors — using Advanced Conductors. Reconductoring and rebuilding existing transmission pathways using Advanced Composite Conductors can help create a significant amount of new transmission capacity more quickly and more cost-effectively than trying to build new, large-scale transmission. Deploying Advanced Conductors to address just 25% of aging infrastructure needs in NERC regions could facilitate the interconnection of at least 27 gigawatts of zero-carbon generating capacity annually over the next 10 years, according to a recent report."

Not only will it pay for itself, but when compared with not doing it and the damages that would cause long term, we're talking about a no brainer
