GridLiance and Tri-County Electric Cooperative Reach Settlement with AEP on Wind Catcher Energy Connection Project
“We are pleased to have reached this settlement with AEP,” said Calvin Crowder, President and CEO of GridLiance. “The Panhandle’s economic development depends on a reliable local transmission system that serves multiple needs, and GridLiance remains committed to serving those needs now and in the future.”
In 2015, GridLiance entered into an agreement with TCEC to plan, construct, and operate transmission infrastructure projects and help the cooperative unlock the financial value of its existing transmission assets.
“By partnering with GridLiance on this settlement, we were able to secure the rights to defend the service territory of our retail customers,” said Zac Perkins, CEO of TCEC. “These rights are to last for the life of the Wind Catcher Energy Connection project and will benefit our members over the long term.”
