NIXA AREA CHAMBER OF COMMERCE: Why is Gridliance so Important to Nixa?

Nixa Area Chamber of Commerce issued the following announcement on March 8.

GridLiance High Plains (GridLiance) is an independent electric transmission company that partners with municipal utilities, electric cooperatives, renewable energy developers and others to invest in the future of the transmission grid.

In April 2018, GridLiance entered into an innovative collaboration with the City of Nixa, Missouri, to acquire the city’s electric transmission assets. The city selected GridLiance as its partner to ensure that Nixa customers enjoy reliable transmission service and comparable rates to other customers in the region while also protecting local jobs. GridLiance retained Nixa Utilities employees to perform operations and maintenance services for the transmission assets that were acquired. GridLiance’s investment in the electric transmission system also freed up capital for the city to meet other needs and improve the electric distribution system in the city. GridLiance also assumed the increasing regulatory and capital improvement burdens associated with this critical infrastructure.

The partnership has already resulted in improved reliability for Nixa Utilities customers. In 2019, GridLiance upgraded the electric transmission system in downtown Nixa to increase the reliability of the electric grid in the region and relocated electric transmission poles to accommodate the expansion of Highway 14 that runs through the municipality. These improvements make the Nixa electric transmission system more reliable and reduces the likelihood of long-term power outages.

GridLiance also works to have a positive impact on the communities we serve, including Nixa. We are proud sponsors of the annual Sucker Days festival and are a proud member of the Chamber of Commerce.
