      The following information was released by the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC):

      In the wake of the largest investment in transmission lines in US history, an analysis of the Midcontinent Independent System Operator's (MISO) recently approved regional transmission lines finds that this investment benefits customers even more than MISO estimated.

      See complete analysis HERE.

      Following is a statement from Toba Pearlman, Renewable Energy Advocate at NRDC (Natural Resources Defense Council):

      "Building regional transmission will prepare us for extreme weather caused by climate change, while unleashing gigawatts of clean energy. ACORE's analysis underscores the value of MISO's recently approved set of regional transmission projects. The report shows the benefits of these lines are undervalued in MISO's analysis. Higher demand and increased strain on the grid mean that reliability is on families' minds. MISO and other grid planning regions must press on and develop more regional transmission lines that we desperately need."

      For more information, see Toba Pearlman's latest blog Midwest Grid Operator's Inching Forward, Miles to Go, which outlines the current state of MISO.
