Iowa law provides the Iowa Utilities Board (IUB) the authority to grant or deny the franchise requests of parties seeking to construct, maintain, and operate electric transmission lines outside of cities in Iowa. The IUB must consider granting a franchise in each county where a party proposes transmission lines. The IUB does not have siting authority regarding transmission lines that run inside of city limits. A transmission line is defined as an electric line capable of operating at 69,000 volts or more. Iowa law states that the IUB may grant franchises in whole or in part upon such terms, conditions, and restrictions as are just and proper, and with such modifications as to line location and route as are just and proper.
