Transmission infrastructure projects are often characterized by high perceived risk and low stakeholder trust. A balance must be struck between the need for additional transmission development and landowner priorities, environmental impact considerations and regulatory compliance.
A comprehensive strategic public participation process is a key tenet to the success of any transmission siting project.
