ACORE in the News

“We should be focused on ensuring these blackouts never happen again. Expanding and upgrading our outdated and balkanized electrical grid is a critical part of the solution. Investment in more interregional transmission through a U.S. Macro Grid will enhance grid reliability, save consumers billions of dollars, deliver significant job creation and dramatically reduce carbon emissions.”
– ACORE President and CEO Gregory Wetstone in USA Today
