WASHINGTON, D.C., August 10, 2023 – Today, American Clean Power Association (ACP) Vice President of Markets & Transmission Carrie Zalewski released a statement on the U.S. Department of Energy’s proposed rule to establish federal permitting of electric transmission:

“Expanding our electricity transmission system is necessary to be able to deliver the affordable, reliable clean energy that American homes and businesses need. Today’s proposal from the Department of Energy would, if finalized, help expedite the federal government’s role in approving the high-voltage transmission lines our country requires.

“ACP appreciates DOE’s efforts to streamline the process for permitting transmission lines, and we look forward to reviewing and commenting on the proposed rule. While this is a positive step, it’s critical that Congress build upon these actions and tackle comprehensive, meaningful permitting reform that, among other things, improves the permitting process for high-impact transmission lines.”
