Mission, Vision & Values Overview

ColumbiaGrid is a membership non-profit corporation providing regional grid planning in the Northwest portion of the Western Interconnection that strives for excellence and exists to:

  • improve reliability of the transmission grid via collaborative, cooperative, cost-effective, efficient and insightful long-term regional transmission (‘grid’) expansion planning consistent with planning and reliability standards (i.e. our Core services); and
  • analyze, develop, or facilitate solutions relating to the improved use or expansion of the transmission grid (i.e. our Non-Core services).

  • In carrying out its Mission and Vision, ColumbiaGrid utilizes an integrated single-system view of its Members’ and Qualified Non-Member Parties’ systems and endeavors to provide sustainable benefits for them (which could not be achieved individually or separately), their customers, and the region consistent with the public interest. ColumbiaGrid does not own any distribution, generation, or transmission facilities.
