Summary: Technical conference on Transmission Planning Processes Under Order No. 890 in the South (AD09-8-000) (Atlanta, GA)
Description: Staff expects all transmission providers to participate in the technical conference for their particular region, although all interested persons, including transmission providers in other regions, regional representatives, transmission customers, developers of merchant transmission and distributed generation, and other resource developers are also invited to participate in each conference.

The conferences scheduled in this notice are intended to meet the Commission’s commitment made in the Initial Planning Orders and Compliance Filing Orders that its staff would conduct an assessment of the Order No. 890 transmission planning processes. Consistent with these orders, the focus of the 2009 regional technical conferences will be:
  1. to determine the progress and benefits realized by each transmission provider’s transmission planning process, obtain customer and other stakeholder input, and discuss any areas that may need improvement;
  2. to examine whether existing transmission planning processes adequately consider needs and solutions on a regional or interconnection-wide basis to ensure adequate and reliable supplies at just and reasonable rates; and
  3. to explore whether existing processes are sufficient to meet emerging challenges to the transmission system, such as the development of interregional transmission facilities, the integration of large amounts of location-constrained generation, and the interconnection of distributed energy resources.

This conference is for Entities located in the states represented in the Southeastern Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (SEARUC) and entities located in the Southwest Power Pool footprint.
