    A proposed partnership between the City of Winfield, the Kansas Power Pool and transmission operator GridLiance of Irving, Texas, will help the city finance upcoming projects and manage the risks that come with owning its electric transmission facilities.

    The city and GridLiance entered into a non-binding letter of agreement Monday regarding possible purchase and development of a portion of the city’s electric system.

    The purpose of the agreement is to preserve current transmission revenue and share the risk of electric transmission ownership, according to documents provided by the city.
