Washington D.C. (October 2020)– In light of the upcoming presidential elections, Americans for a Clean Energy Grid (ACEG) has published the following policies which would help advance large scale regional and inter-regional transmission in the country, increasing reliability, resilience, efficiency, and environmental objectives.
Rob Gramlich, Executive Director of ACEG, said “ACEG is pleased to share these recommendations with federal policy makers. Transmission is the platform on which our modern economy is built. It is time for policy makers to give this important infrastructure its due attention to support a vibrant economy and clean environment.”
ACEG is the only non-profit broad-based public interest advocacy coalition focused on the need to expand, integrate, and modernize the North American high-voltage grid. Expanded high-voltage transmission will make America’s electric grid more affordable, reliable, and sustainable and create thousands of well-paying jobs. ACEG’s mission is to educate stakeholders and the public to support policies and regulations favoring the expansion, modernization, and integration of the high-voltage electric transmission grid.
ACEG brings together the diverse support for an expanded and modernized grid from business, labor, consumer, and environmental groups, as well as other transmission supporters to educate policymakers and key opinion leaders to support policy which recognizes the benefits of a robust transmission grid. ACEG serves as a clearinghouse of ideas that our coalition sponsors and supporters believe will positively impact large scale regional and inter-regional transmission.
