GridLiance GP, LLC
Incorporated in 2014, GridLiance GP, LLC is a family of transmission only operating and holding companies. Our core business model is to partner with municipalities, joint action agencies and electric cooperatives to solve transmission issues and manage transmission costs.
What sets GridLiance apart is the way we approach our partnerships. We offer our partners new opportunities to invest in regulated transmission projects, or, take advantage of a GridLiance upfront capital investment to plan and construct transmission for their benefit. Our partners always have the option, not the obligation, to invest in any transmission project, small or large.
We’re experts in planning, engineering, construction and operation and will ensure that your transmission is treated equitably in the Regional Transmission Organization (RTO) process.
GridLiance is backed by Blackstone Energy Partners, a leading energy infrastructure investor and an affiliate of Blackstone (NYSE:BX).
GridLiance currently operates over 575 miles of transmission lines and related substation facilities, has long term co-development agreements in place with municipalities, joint action agencies, and electric cooperatives operating in Missouri, Oklahoma, and Kansas, and is negotiating new arrangements with utilities in several other states.
