More Work on Transmission Constraints

Laramie, Wy – The state of Wyoming is continuing to study its electricity transmission gridlock problem. Basically there is a constraint on the amount of electricity Wyoming can export because of the gridlock. After doing a report with public and private entities, Wyoming will now start work with the company National Grid U-S-A. Jackie Barry from National Grid says the combined effort will continue to analyze the feasibility of possible projects and come up with a blueprint of transmission projects for companies to follow in the future. The study is set to start in early January and should take about a year to complete. Jackie Barry says her company might pursue some of the projects, but they won't make any decisions until the study is done. National Grid is sharing the cost of the report with the state of Wyoming.
