It is well known that the Southwest Power Pool (SPP) has been a strong area for wind growth, but can this growth actually harm future wind development in the area? SPP has begun to see issues with transmission congestion and curtailment that may hinder its wind future. While the region has seen some smart and beneficial transmission policies to spur the initial growth, the work isn’t over to keep the transmission of power simple.

Download this ICF white paper to see how transmission issues are affecting SPP and what can be done about it in the future.
