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.
