“Regulatory hurdles under NEPA have triggered reliability challenges and forced electric co-ops and their communities to endure costly project delays. We support the spirit of NEPA, and these sensible modernizations are long overdue. Today’s announcement will ensure that environmental reviews and decisions involving multiple agencies are synchronized and efficient.

“These reforms will provide electric co-ops much-needed clarity and certainty as they continue to diversify their energy portfolios and increase the resiliency of their systems. Both necessitate the modernization or construction of new electric transmission and distribution facilities.”

Jim Matheson, CEO, NRECA
