AEA, as owner of significant generation and transmission assets in the railbelt region of the State, and in furtherance of its mission to reduce the cost of energy in the State, plays an important role in ensuring that sound public policy and energy planning initiatives within the region, maximize the potential benefits to the broadest group of stakeholders. Without a specific certificated area, and as owners of asset’s which cross multiple jurisdictional boundaries, AEA is uniquely positioned to facilitate discussions amongst stakeholder groups and find solutions for the region in its entirety. AEA does so through its leadership role on the management committees associated with its assets.
In 2010, AEA commissioned a Regional Integrated Resource Plan for the Railbelt. Those documents can be found here.
