The annual MISO Transmission Expansion Plan (MTEP) identifies solutions to meet transmission needs and create value opportunities over the next decade and beyond. These solutions are defined via the implementation of a comprehensive planning approach which identifies essential transmission projects for approval and subsequent construction. MISO staff recommends the projects listed and described in MTEP11 Appendix A1 to the MISO Board of Directors for their review and approval.
MTEP11, the eighth edition of this publication, is the culmination of more than 18 months of collaboration between MISO planning staff and stakeholders. The primary purpose of this and other MTEP iterations is to identify transmission projects that:
 Ensure the reliability of the transmission system over the planning horizon.
 Provide economic benefits, such as increased market efficiency.
 Facilitate public policy objectives, such as meeting Renewable Portfolio Standards.
 Address other issues or goals identified through the stakeholder process.
MTEP11 recommends $6.52 billion in new transmission expansion through the year 2021 for inclusion in Appendix A and construction. This is part of a continuing effort to ensure a reliable and efficient electric grid that keeps pace with energy and policy demands. Key findings and activities from the MTEP11 cycle include:
