Grain Belt Express To Provide More Energy To Missouri Than Originally Planned

The future Grain Belt Express power line that’s scheduled to be built across Missouri will provide more power to the Show-Me State than originally planned. 

Invenergy, the project’s parent company, announced Monday that once built, the Grain Belt Express will now have a capacity of five-thousand megawatts with half of the power to be delivered to Missouri. 

The company’s website says that’s the equivalent of four new nuclear power plants in transmission capacity. 

The Grain Belt Express line is planned to run about 800 miles from western Kansas to the Indiana border.

Its path across northern Missouri will run roughly from St. Joseph to Hannibal.
