The ‘unprecedented’ risks facing our power grid this winter should be a wake-up call for government

Todd Snitchler writes in UtilityDive about the need to invest in our power grid.

The C3 Take
  • Experts are projecting that America’s energy grid will face unprecedented reliability issues this winter.
  • Regulators at the state and federal levels must work to pass meaningful reforms to modernize our grid.
  • This starts with enacting permitting reform to allow developers to build critical infrastructure such as pipelines and transmission lines.
  • By reducing barriers that hinder innovation and progress, policymakers can shore up our energy security and improve grid reliability.

“The United States is one of the top energy producers in the world, and Americans should not have to doubt their ability to stay warm and have reliable power this winter. We expect the power grid to keep the refrigerator humming, car charging, and economy running. It’s imperative the Biden administration nominates a FERC commissioner who can set our power grid up for success by prioritizing its safety, reliability, and affordability.”
