I recently wrote an article for Sustainable Business Oregon that you might be interested in reading. In it, I discuss the need for additional transmission lines to link renewable energy sources from the point of generation (which is usually located far from American cities) to the homes and businesses that use the electricity.
New transmission lines will not solve our energy problems on their own, but without them we do not stand a chance at achieving a clean energy future. Effective federal policies will be instrumental to developing these much-needed new lines, and there must be clean energy transmission policies included in the energy bill now moving through Congress.
