Welcome to the Transmission Agency of Northern California (TANC) website, your resource for information on electric transmission and its critical role in keeping the lights on in Northern California. In addition to providing information about TANC, this site is designed to be a portal to information regarding California's transmission system and needs, goals for increasing the use of renewable energy sources and reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and how TANC and others are working together to meet California's energy infrastructure needs. New information will be added regularly; thank you for visiting!

What will it cost to meet California's transmission needs?

The 11 new transmission lines the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) estimates will be needed - just to meet California's goals for providing energy from renewable sources - are projected to cost $16 billion. Three of these lines are currently under way, but CPUC predicts that even if implementation on all the other lines were to start today, it would take another 14 years to achieve the 33 percent renewable goal.
