White House Announces State Partnerships to Increase Electric Grid Capacity

President Biden’s administration announced the Federal-State Modern Grid Deployment Initiative. Beginning with 21 states to modernize America’s electric grid, the initiative will offer the states federal resources and technical assistance to implement modernized energy transmission technology.

“Historically, expanding the capacity of the U.S. power grid has typically relied on building new transmission lines with technologies that have not changed since the mid-twentieth century,” the White House stated. “Today, a new generation of modern grid technologies provides a significant opportunity to achieve power system capacity expansion.”

According to the Presidential Prayer Team, This initiative furthers the administration’s goal of creating a carbon-neutral energy grid by increasing grid connections to renewable energy inputs. By encouraging grid modernization on the state level, the president’s administration can bypass Congressional debates to improve the capacity for increased transmission of energy between communities and energy sources.
