  • Approval of transmission elements under $50 million
    The tariff allows ISO management to approve transmission projects expected to cost less than $50 million that are identified in the annual planning process. The ISO proposes to extend its tariff provisions to also include any transmission elements under $50 million. This will enable the ISO to conduct competitive solicitations for smaller, needed transmission elements on accelerated timelines and avoid delays caused by trying to meet the Board of Governors approval process.
    • Outcome
      Effective Oct. 30, 2012, the ISO can approve and proceed with the competitive solicitation process for development of needed policy or economically-driven transmission elements under $50 million without Board of Governors’ approval. — FERC Order: Oct. 30, 2012 (ER12-2552); Board of Governors approval: July 12, 2012
