Large multi-state transmission siting projects benefit from collaboration between all government entities involved. This collaboration often requires the development of an MOU, which can be a time-consuming process and may be considered a barrier in the current transmission siting processes in place. The MOU library contains appropriate example MOUs for various levels of government interaction (e.g., federal-to-state, state-to-state, state-to-local, and state-to-tribe) and best practices for development of MOU documents.
