About GridLiance GP, LLC
Incorporated in 2014, GridLiance GP, LLC is the nation’s first independent transmission only company focused on working with municipal utilities, joint action agencies and electric cooperatives to solve transmission issues and manage transmission costs. Through its subsidiary transmission companies formed to operate in each regional transmission organization (RTO), GridLiance will jointly plan, develop, own and operate transmission assets with Public Power entities.
GridLiance is headquartered in Chicago, with regional offices in Kansas City, MO; Austin, TX; and Washington, D.C.
GridLiance’s mission is to provide its Public Power partners with opportunities to invest in regulated transmission development projects, enabling the utilities to earn margins from regionally-funded projects to offset transmission rate increases, as well as receive other benefits, including lower energy costs and increased reliability for their consumers, while providing greater access to renewable energy sources.
