Main Text

As part of the 2013-2014 Transmission Planning Process, the ISO has posted an update to the 2012-2013 Conceptual Statewide Plan on its website at


The ISO is providing a 20-day comment period from November 1, 2013 through November 20, 2013 for stakeholders to submit comments and recommend modifications to the Conceptual Statewide Plan. Proposed modifications may include alternative transmission elements needed to access resources in locations not included in the conceptual statewide plan, and non-transmission elements providing alternative solutions to transmission upgrades and additions needed to meet the state policy initiatives. Such modifications should not be specific projects, rather electrical solutions to address transmission needs that are identified.


Please submit comments to no later than close of business November 20.


More information on the submission of comments and recommendations on the Conceptual Statewide Plan is available in the BPM for the Transmission Planning Process located at Planning Process.
