The Center for Rural Affairs has released a map and informational database of proposed clean energy transmission projects throughout the Great Plains and Upper Midwest. The database is continuously updated to include both new lines and new information for projects currently listed.
Twenty proposed projects across the region are mapped along with detailed and updated development information at cfra.org.
‘These transmission projects are critical to unleashing the tremendous wind energy potential of the region, and hold the key to the thousands of jobs projected to come from wind energy development,’ says Johnathan Hladik, energy advocate and map designer at the Center for Rural Affairs.
The Center for Rural Affairs recently released a report, Connect the Dots: Transmission and Rural America, highlighting the potential benefits of wind energy developments if these types of transmission projects are advanced. The report can be found here.
