Energy Transmission

The Movement of Energy

The energy infrastructure that exists today – generation, transmission and distribution systems delivering reliable service – is evolving and adapting to meet the demands for greater renewable energy options, lower emissions, and growing commercial and consumer interest in alternative energy sources.

At Berkshire Hathaway Energy, we diversify our generation mix both by using renewable generation in our rate-regulated businesses, and by forming new businesses and ventures to create even greater flexibility in generation capacity and grid reliability.
