Dairyland Power Cooperative is the selected developer for a Midcontinent  Independent System Operator, Inc., (MISO) 345 kilovolt (kV) transmission project in Wisconsin.  The competitive bid was won by Dairyland to develop, own and operate a new 345 kV line from  the Mississippi River to the Tremval substation (Blair, WI).

“These transmission facilities will foster the delivery of renewable resources from the West and  strengthen reliability in the region,” said Dairyland Executive Vice President and Chief Operating  Officer Ben Porath. “Dairyland has a strong history of owning and operating 69 kV and 161 kV  transmission projects in our four-state region. Although Dairyland has co-owned 345 kV  projects, this is a milestone as it will be Dairyland’s first opportunity to both own and operate a  345 kV transmission line as our cooperative readies for the energy transition.”
