When it comes to the politics of land use decisions, it’s comforting when energy industry leaders like John Procario of American Transmission Company really get it, writes Jay Vincent, Saint Consulting Group’s senior vice president for energy.

In the recent publication of EnergyBiz, Procario, President and CEO of American Transmission Company reviews the power of public outreach and stakeholder acceptance in building political support for siting transmission lines across the country.

It’s a good thing leaders like Procario are utilizing these best practices in their approval processes given the “don’t hold your breath” status of more Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) authority coming out of the energy bill being considered on Capitol Hill.
