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 electric cooperatives, public power, and others to plan for the future of the grid, invest in transmission infrastructure, and improve grid reliability.

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.
