Public comment sought on updating transmission grid
Western is taking a leadership role in transitioning to a more resilient and flexible electric grid and to achieving much greater coordination among system operators. If we can take greater advantage of clean energy resources, while at the same time reducing costs to customers, we can bring the benefits of increased connectivity and enhanced reliability to more Americans. You can learn more about in Secretary of Energy Stephen Chu’s May 30, 2012 blog post.
We need your input
Your leadership and participation will help guide this effort to transform our transmission grid into a 21st century system, stimulate job creation, take greater advantage of new technologies and existing resources, reduce price and supply risk and advance our international competitiveness. We look forward to working closely with you throughout the process.
