Welcome to the Transmission Agency of Northern California (TANC) website, your resource for information on electric transmission and its critical role in keeping the lights on in Northern California. In addition to providing information about TANC, this site is designed to be a portal to information regarding California's transmission system and needs, goals for increasing the use of renewable energy sources and reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and how TANC and others are working together to meet California's energy infrastructure needs. New information will be added regularly; thank you for visiting!
