With growing energy demands throughout MISO's footprint, our services help ensure reliable, least-cost delivered energy. MISO’s Value Proposition documents how we unlock billions in annual benefits for the region. In 2022, those efforts provided between $3.3 billion and $4.5 billion in regional benefits and amounted to more than twelve times MISO's operating costs.
This benefit is expected to increase as members implement their renewable generation and decarbonization goals. Read MISO’s Value Proposition Forward View Report to learn more about this projected growth and its drivers.
MISO’s Value Proposition affirms our core belief that a collective, region-wide approach to grid planning and management delivers the greatest benefits. Our landmark analysis serves as a model for other grid operators and transparently communicates the benefits of MISO membership in everything we do.
The value of MISO was realized shortly after the energy-only market began in 2005. To quantify this value, MISO – in collaboration with its stakeholders – created the MISO Value Proposition in 2007. The Value Proposition breaks MISO’s business model into recognized categories of benefits and calculates a range of dollar values for each defined category.
From 2007 through 2022, the Value Proposition studies revealed that the MISO region realized an estimated $40 billion in cumulative net benefits.
