Be Informed. Take a look at Iowa States research!

MISO?  YOU MAY WANT TO UNDERSTAND THIS…

Here is a map of their plans…take a look at MN!

This a good youtube video about MISO and how it regulates the power grid that they build in a county.

https://www.misoenergy.org/Planning/GeneratorInterconnection/Pages/InterconnectionQueue.aspx  this link above is how you search your county for interconnection requests.  Just put your state and county in the box then “fuel type” is wind.

So who owns what, where your taxpayer money going? More MISO info WIND OF THE WIRES WEBSITE.
