The Midcontinent Independent System Operator Inc. (MISO) has begun construction on a regional operations center in Little Rock, Ark.

MISO notes that this action marks the next phase of the integration on Dec. 19, 2013, of the four-state electric grid spanning the southern region into MISO. As such, the facility in Little Rock will serve as the command center for MISO's newly established South Region.

The system operator expects to spend $22 million on the new facility, which is scheduled to be complete by the end of this year. Employees will move in during spring 2015, MISO adds.
