Americans for a Clean Energy Grid support policies that will modernize the nation’s electric power network and unlock clean energy and economic opportunities across the country. The backbone of a clean electricity system and a strong economy is a resilient and reliable transmission grid. Smart state and federal policies that improve the way the grid is developed, planned, and paid for will help it become a more robust, reliable, and secure network that supports expansion of renewable energy, competitive power markets, energy efficiency, and lower costs for consumers.
Check out our new series of regional transmission webinars, running from Fall ’13 to Winter ’14. Each will be a regionally-focused discussion about political, economic and environmental issues surrounding transmission, such as siting, planning, and cost allocation.
