to the Electric Grid
Leveraging Technical Expertise
and Building Support to Expand Markets
Transmission is a vital component to advancing renewable energy in the Midwest.
Since most new utility-scale wind and solar resources are located in rural areas, transmission is needed to transport this clean, low-cost energy to the grid.
- Participate: WOW participates in stakeholder processes at MISO to advocate for transmission projects that will enable access to the electric grid for renewable energy resources and energy storage.
- Integrate: WOW actively advocates for renewable energy at MISO to ensure that renewables are efficiently integrated into the electric grid. WOW also supports policies that create a flexible grid that can reliably accommodate large volumes of utility-scale renewables.
- Stimulate: WOW works to stimulate market conditions that support or enhance the use of renewables and emerging technologies through policy initiatives at MISO.
- Activate: WOW brings its members together to strategize and participate in planning, market rules, and operations issues to enable the growth of renewable energy resources and battery storage at MISO.
We leverage our technical expertise at MISO to expand the deployment and integration of cost effective renewables on the grid and advocate for expanding market opportunities for renewables.Learn More
