Grid Plan Endorsed

The federal government has endorsed a plan that calls for private energy companies to purchase the rights
to a key piece of California´s transmission grid.

The plan would allow those private companies to control the flow of electricity and charge transmission
fees to any agency or utility wanting to move power on the lines.

The U-S Department of Energy yesterday invited private energy

companies to
help pay for the expansion of the transmission grid in the Central Valley.
