Energy Agnostic: Grid Investments - Double Green

The American Wind Energy Association and the Solar Energy Industries Association call it a “Green Power SuperHighway.”

“A robust transmission grid provides consumers with access to lower-cost electricity,” the two associations said in a recent report . “On a severely constrained transmission grid, as now exists in many parts of the United States, consumers are forced to rely on local power plants even though plants in other regions can produce power more efficiently and at lower cost.”

“If we had a stronger grid, we could pump power from wind-rich areas in the West to Chicago, St. Louis and maybe even New York,” says the National Renewable Energy Laboratory.

New Solar, New Wind, Clean Coal... green or not, investment in the transport grid will no doubt be profitable.
