Mission: Work collaboratively and transparently with our stakeholders to enable reliable delivery of low-cost energy through efficient, innovative operations and planning.
MISO is an essential link in the safe, cost-effective delivery of electric power across all or parts of 15 U.S. states and the Canadian province of Manitoba. As a Regional Transmission Organization, MISO assures consumers of unbiased regional grid management and open access to the transmission facilities under MISO’s functional supervision.
Learn how we demonstrate our mission through our Strategic Plan.
MISO and its members find new ways to strengthen the reliability of the region’s interconnected transmission network, bringing benefits to all consumers of electricity. Our transparent market operations, value-based regional planning, and independence help us build a stronger, more reliable electric grid for today — and tomorrow.
Reliability Assurance: MISO uses superior tools and processes to maintain and manage reliability. By answering this important responsibility we provide enhanced operating and monitoring of the regional electric grid and more efficient use of the region’s transmission infrastructure.
Competitive Markets: We manage one of the world’s largest energy markets, clearing billions in gross market charges annually. We use a five-minute commitment process that provides market liquidity and transparent pricing while also minimizing congestion and maximizing efficient energy transmission.
Transmission and Resource Planning: MISO facilitates value-based regional planning for reliable generation and transmission of energy. Our ongoing studies and evaluations consider seasonal demand fluctuations, growing consumer needs and the integration of renewable energy.
Tariff Administration: As a regional transmission organization, we are the sole decision-making authority on the provision of transmission service in accordance with our FERC-approved tariff. Additionally, we coordinate transmission use and administration with other tariffs in the region.
Our wide range of services began simply enough. Several transmission owners recognized the benefits of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s vision to form an independently operated regional transmission system. They voluntarily come together in 1998 to establish MISO. As a Regional Transmission Organization, MISO:
I have been working at MISO full-time (More than 3 years)
End of year bonus
vacation and sick time given at beginning of year, not accrued
Lots of over educated under qualified folks are hired
quarterly update schedule can mess up holidays for the whole year
I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at MISO (Carmel, IN).
It was an initial phone call screen with basic questions about the company itself and then a simple behavioral interview with a bit of technical questions to gage your knowledge on different languages. None of the interviews were terribly hard as long as you do research on the company and know how to answer questions in STAR format.
