The annual MISO Transmission Expansion Plan (MTEP) evaluates and approves transmission-owner submitted projects based on multiple planning criteria. The MTEP process has resulted in more than $30 billion in projects since 2003, in the general categories of generator interconnection, reliability, load growth and general maintenance. The approved projects, as a whole, build an electric infrastructure to meet local and regional reliability standards; enable competition among wholesale capacity and energy suppliers in the MISO markets; and allow for competition among transmission developers. Each December, MISO presents the MTEP report to its Board of Directors for approval.
The MISO Project Portal has moved to a new platform which you may know as the MISO Help Center. This new portal provides a robust user-friendly experience that supports the submission and management of MTEP projects throughout their lifecycle while enabling the integration capabilities for future MISO technologies.
MTEP Planning is hosting an Open Office Hours session Oct 20th 10:00-11:00 AM and is posted on the MISO Public Calendar.
Additional Open Office Hour sessions have been added for Nov 3 and December 13th and are also posted on the MISO Public Calendar.
Appointment only 1:1 Office Hours are available after Go-Live through January for additional support. Transmission Owners can reach out to their MISO Expansion Planner representative with questions or concerns and request an appointment as needed.
