MUSCATINE, Iowa–MPW will hold a public hearing about MISO transmission rates at 5:20 p.m., prior to the Aug. 30 board meeting.

At the July board meeting, MPW general manager, Gage Huston, said, “we don’t typically have much interest about our rates because we are such a small part of MISO.”

Progress Muscatine president, Jessica Brackett said: “that makes sense. If material about the process and the public hearing is not easily accessible, the community isn’t going to participate. The first step to engagement is making information easily accessible. Therefore, Progress Muscatine has requested that all materials concerning public hearings be made available on their website prior to each hearing.” Furthermore, “this issue is of particular importance for the Muscatine community because rates are a significant piece of the puzzle when determining the best route forward in the once in a generation energy transition plan at MPW.”

Specifically, Progress Muscatine has requested access to MPW’s Annual MISO Transmission Rate Update -Attachment O, as referenced in their July 28 press release, and all information related to public hearings be made available on their website prior to each public hearing. MPW has not responded to this request.
