As Michigan’s agriculture sector grows more productive and efficient, those in the industry say the state’s electrical and natural gas infrastructure is not keeping pace.
In a recent Minnesota case testing the state’s Buy the Farm law, public perception of transmission lines — rather than science — was the deciding factor.
A plan to string high-voltage transmission lines 200 miles across the state of Missouri got a chilly reception from area landowners during the first public airing of the project Tuesday.
The Center for Rural Affairs says a new approach to acquiring transmission rights-of-way could offer both landowners and developers a better deal than eminent domain.
Cheap, clean, and inexhaustible, renewables are now held back mainly by inadequate infrastructure and outdated policies.
A century ago, the newly emerging electrical grid’s impact on birds and other wildlife was far from anyone’s mind. A lot has changed since then.
A running dispute between Midwest grid operators is heating up again in a closely watched case likely to affect the flow of power across the region and that could shape the build-out of high-voltage transmission lines.
Wind energy suffers from an image problem because it’s intermittent. But wind farms could actually improve power reliability in an economic way, according to a recent study.
In Kansas, home of sprawling wind farms and the Koch brothers, conservative groups and renewable energy advocates are girding for another battle over the state’s green power law.
A new media analysis offers transmission line developers several suggestions to ease the friction they commonly encounter with communities in their path.
