Posted: Updated:

 Arkansas is getting another office to help manage the nation's electric grid, and it will bring new jobs.

 Midcontinent Independent Systems Operator announced Wednesday it will build a facility in Lttle Rock and hire up to 50 employees who will earn an average annual salary of $85,000.

"When you look at the central geographic location, the quality of life you have here, the workforce and the colleges and universities that can support the high tech folks that we need, it was a very easy choice," said CEO John Bear.

 MISO says it will spend between $5,000,000 and $8,000,000 for its Little Rock regional operations center.
