Biden-Harris Administration Announces $300 Million to Speed Up Transmission Permitting Across America as Part of Investing in America Agenda
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has introduced a funding opportunity of up to $300 million in grants for states, tribes, and local governments to accelerate and streamline siting and permitting procedures for electric transmission projects across the United States.
Developers around the country are focusing on constructing energy-resilient community microgrids, which function as self-contained power grids.
On July 27, 2023, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) unanimously approved a final rule that aims to streamline and speed up the grid interconnection process for transmission providers.
