Wind Power Transmission Projects

Transmission projects are starting to pick up.  For renewable energy (RE), transmission has two big benefits.  It allows RE producing regions, like the wind energy in the central US, to be connected to population centers.  In addition, it allows geographic diversity to help smooth the intermittent RE generation.
