CapX2020 transmission line projects
CapX2020 represents an
effort to ensure the electricity reliability of Minnesota
and the surrounding region for the future. It started
as an effort by the state's largest transmission owners
-- including cooperatives, municipals and investor-owned
utilities -- to assess the system and projected growth
in customer demand for electricity through 2020.
Studies show that the region's transmission
backbone will require major upgrades and expansion to
accommodate increased electricity demand as well as support
renewable energy expansion through 2020.
