Being an owner in ‘grid’ would increase revenues for Willmar Municipal Utilities
WILLMAR — Willmar Municipal Utilities’ electric customers would benefit if the city-owned utility becomes a full owner and not just a market participant in the region’s transmission grid.
Utilities such as Willmar pay a delivery charge for the electricity they buy off the grid. In return, utilities that own assets in the grid receive revenue from payments made by transmission users for shipping that electricity over the grid.
