The transmission portion of our electric grid helps us keep our communities powered, but the transmission grid is also an unsung hero for the energy transition. Transmission lines allow renewable energy to be transported to population centers that otherwise could not access that energy.
While this revenue will be collected through a charge on customers bills, electric customers will not experience an increase in their bills because incoming bill credits from a settlement in Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) docket EL 18-152 (related to the Grand Gulf Nuclear Station) will offset these costs. The average gas customer will see an increase of $4.93 on their monthly bill.
