About Us

Supporting America's Energy Future by Expanding the Grid

Grid United’s mission is to develop next generation energy infrastructure to power our future.We believe that the grid of the future should reliably deliver the energy that people want, exactly when and where they need it. This means that the grid must be efficient, resilient, and secure.


We recognize that our projects will have a long-term presence in the communities where they are proposed, and we aim to foster long-term partnerships with landowners and local stakeholders. We strive to conduct ourselves in a respectful manner and are committed to working with landowners and local residents to understand the unique characteristics of each community and property. Grid United places great importance on maintaining the relationships we build with landowners and communities as we work to fulfill the goals of enhanced grid resilience and energy security, job creation, and local economic development.

Leveraging our expertise in linear infrastructure, we seek strategic partnerships that advance opportunities to develop, construct, own, and operate transmission projects throughout the United States. Grid United believes that local utilities will often see fit to participate as owners or customers of the lines we are developing.
