WIRES gains two transmission providers as members

Pacific Gas & Electric Co. and National Grid have joined WIRES as full members, following a vote by the organization’s members.

“We are very pleased to have at the table two such important participants in the high voltage transmission sector,” said WIRES President Phillip Grigsby of Duke Energy. “PG&E and National Grid will help WIRES focus on transmission issues that are important to electricity markets nationally and the specific challenges in their regions.  I look forward to working with them in promoting robust transmission infrastructure in the national interest.”

“This development signals that the representative business models and geographic diversity of the WIRES membership remains important to the group’s internal conversations as well as its views on transmission policy and law,” said Jim Hoecker, WIRES counsel and advisor and former chairman of the FERC.

“PG&E is looking forward to engaging with WIRES and its membership to support the needs of customers through economic expansion of the nation’s grid” said Gregg Lemler, VP of transmission operations at PG&E.
