As one of the world’s leading Regional Transmission Organizations and the largest geographical organization of its kind, MISO provides independent, equal and non-discriminatory access to the electric transmission system. MISO's efficient market operations ensure and support increased grid reliability.
In 2015, those efforts provided between $2.1 billion and $3.1 billion in regional benefits, driven by enhanced reliability, more efficient use of the region’s existing transmission and generation assets, and a reduced need for new assets. Find out more from our annual Value Proposition study.
Managing the reliability of nearly 66,000 miles of high voltage transmission lines requires experienced staff, superior tools and precise practices. MISO improves reliability, in part, by providing a regional view of the power system and market-based congestion management.
