A Canadian subsidiary of MidAmerican Transmission has entered into a joint venture with Renewable Energy Systems Canada Inc. (RES Canada) in Ontario to sponsor a competitive proposal for the province's East-West Tie Line project.

"MidAmerican Transmission plans to actively compete in the competitive process for already established projects and for projects in development," the company says in a release. "Future projects will build upon MidAmerican Transmission's experience in the existing joint ventures of Prairie Wind Transmission and Electric Transmission Texas."

MidAmerican Transmission is based in Des Moines, Iowa. The parent company, MidAmerican Energy Holdings, provides electric and natural gas service to more than 6.9 million customers and operates 18,000 miles of transmission lines.
