As part of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law – Section 40101(d), the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Grid Development Office has allocated funds to the State of North Dakota, through the North Dakota Transmission Authority (NDTA). The North Dakota’s 68th Legislative Assembly funded a 15% match for the DOE grant.


NDTA is seeking to fund grid modernization projects that result in a more resilient electrical grid and promote a clean and equitable energy economy in North Dakota. Special attention will be given to disadvantaged, vulnerable, and underserved communities, as designated by the Justice40 Initiative and other U.S. government directives. NDTA has identified the following objectives and associated metrics for evaluating proposed projects.
