Wind Powering America staff will be attending.
The Great Lakes Wind Collaborative (GLWC) Regional Transmission Workgroup invites you to join a two-hour discussion on transmission cost allocation, particularly as it pertains to the connection of wind energy facilities to the grid.
Constraints in current grid capacity have necessitated advance planning in order to meet rising electricity demands and the interconnection needs of alternative forms of energy. Representatives from the major transmission organizations in the Great Lakes region will provide an overview of their respective cost allocation processes and plans for future changes. General discussion on the drawbacks and advantages of the different cost allocation methods is encouraged.
