Entergy Mississippi sees savings with power grid

“Joining MISO, one of the largest regional transmission organizations in the United States, means two things for our residential, commercial and industrial customers: continued reliability and reasonable costs. MISO brings more options, more transparency and more independence that will enhance our service to customers,” Bob Grenfell, Entergy Mississippi’s vice president of regulatory affairs, said in a statement.

Entergy would still own its high-voltage transmission lines that get power from the generating plants to distribution points, but MISO would take over management and planning functions in conjunction with its other members.
