The National and Regional Grid

The electric grid is a constant balancing act, and Midcontinent Independent System Operator (MISO) is the regional market where we buy and sell our power. Our power market team buys the power necessary to serve our 18 member systems and once our demand is met, the team then sells our generation capacity back into the MISO market. This relationship gives us and other Generation & Transmission Cooperatives equal access to the transmission grid and transparent pricing, directly improvement the efficiency of the power market and maintaining significant reliability for the system.
