"The transmission and distribution is getting to where the resources are. That’s in the mix, along with how the technology already out there helps address shortfalls. Think about how you load the various transmission lines based on temperatures — dynamic load rating. Figuring out how those technologies can enable the transmission of renewables while growing out the transmission portfolio is part of the strategy." "The other part is engaging with utilities and regional transmission operators (RTOs) to access renewables. Utilities are natural partners for renewables, like our green tariff with Consumers Energy. More states, utilities, and public service commissioners are looking at green tariffs as an option to grow the portfolio."
