The United States has some of the best renewable resources in the world, but we face a critical challenge. We lack the 21st century electric transmission infrastructure to deliver abundant sources of renewable energy, which are primarily located in remote areas, to consumers in our cities and towns.
The Plains & Eastern Clean Line transmission project is critical to continuing the nation’s leadership in clean energy production by delivering low-cost wind energy from the wind-rich Oklahoma Panhandle region to utilities and customers in Arkansas, Tennessee, and other markets in the Mid-South and Southeast.
Increasing the availability of low-cost, clean energy will achieve significant reductions in pollution and water use, while providing affordable and reliable electricity to American consumers.
The Plains & Eastern Clean Line also benefits local communities by stimulating economic development and creating new jobs. The transmission project is an example of the free-market at work: privately financed and not dependent on federal subsidies.
The Plains & Eastern Clean Line is a unique opportunity to bring together private investment, public benefits, and government leadership to add substantial new renewable generation to the country’s energy mix. It is a pro-jobs, pro-consumer, pro-environment public energy infrastructure project that will modernize America’s grid and create a cleaner energy future.
The U.S. Department of Energy is currently deciding whether to approve the Plains & Eastern Clean Line transmission project. Tell Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz to support more renewable energy and 21st century infrastructure today!
