Additional Validated Project Sponsor Application for the Delaney to Colorado River Transmission Project
The California ISO posted an updated list of project sponsors whose applications for the Delany to Colorado River transmission line are deemed valid. The updated list includes two applicants that submitted a joint proposal following collaboration. ISO will select a qualified project sponsor from the list to finance, own, construct, operate and maintain the Delaney to Colorado River 500 kV transmission line.
The ISO previously posted to its website a list of project sponsors whose proposals for the Delaney to Colorado River 500 kV transmission line project satisfy the information submission requirements. Following this posting, the ISO received a request from two of the applicant project sponsors to pursue collaboration. These two applicants successfully completed the collaboration process and submitted a joint proposal. Thus, the list of validated project sponsors is revised and available at http://www.caiso.com/Documents/List-ValidatedProjectSponsorApplications-Delaney_ColoradoRiverProject.pdf.
In accordance with section 188.8.131.52 of the ISO tariff, the ISO has validated this joint proposal for further consideration and evaluation in the project sponsor qualification and selection processes. The application was evaluated based on information submitted by the project sponsors to finance, own, construct, operate, and maintain the Delaney to Colorado River 500 kV transmission line.
