So we see that the consultants knew from the beginning that connecting Pyrolyzer to the wholesale grid (MISO) was essential. Now we are told that one reason for delay is “drafting an agreement” with MISO.
MISO has a procedure for reaching an agreement for selling power on the wholesale grid. It starts with making application to MISO, including paying them for an engineering review of your claims. The MISO website shows no application for MISO membership by the City or for any Cass County generator. No incineration project has applied to MISO. Further, there is no evidence that Pyrolyzer has any experience as a regional transmission originator (RTO is the industry term).
If the City is dealing in good faith with its citizens, it should show that application to MISO, including MISO’s engineering study of Pyrolyzer’s plan, is already underway.
