— Last month, The American Council on Renewable Energy (ACORE) and Americans for a Clean Energy Grid (ACEG) launched the Macro Grid Initiative to build support for expanding and upgrading the nation’s transmission network. A 21st century Macro Grid will deliver jobs and economic development, a cleaner environment, and lower costs for consumers.

Achieving the Macro Grid vision will require new policies at the federal, regional and state levels that recognize the substantial nationwide benefits of an interregionally connected transmission network.
