Wind Energy To Market

For decades we have been searching for ways to get the goods we produce to market. We started with railroad tracks. From there we focused on highways, and eventually the Interstate Highway System.

Today we turn our attention to transmission lines.

Transmission and Your Business

When something as big as a new transmission line is being built in your area, you won’t be blamed for asking a few good questions.  Where will the line be located? Do I have any say in the process? How will this project improve my community?

Fortunately, the Center for Rural Affairs understands your concerns. Clean Line does too. That’s why they’re holding a round of open houses to introduce the Grain Belt Express.

Introducing the Energy Pyramid

Those of us who live and work in rural communities are experiencing the effects of extreme and unpredictable weather events first hand. Anyone tasked with planting this year – whether it’s the family garden or the back forty – knows that adaptation is the name of the game. You have to be flexible, ready to react when conditions are favorable and patient when they are anything but.

Transmission and Teamwork

It’s one thing to talk about the importance of building clean energy transmission to meet the needs of local communities. It’s quite another to put those words into action. This year, the Center for Rural Affairs is doing just that.

We’ve teamed up with grassroots organizations throughout the Upper Midwest to better understand how to enable a new generation of wind projects in a way that works best for you. It’s our job to sit down with community members, work to understand their needs, and help answer their questions.
