Summary: Technical Conference on CAISO proposed Revised Transmission Planning Process (RTPP) (ER10-1401-000) (Free Webcast)
Description: The purpose of the technical conference is to discuss the issues raised by CAISO’s proposed revisions to its Open Access Transmission Tariff (Tariff) to implement its RTPP in Docket No. ER10-1401-000 and obtain additional information regarding CAISO’s proposal. Because CAISO’s RTPP filing presents issues that may be interrelated with the Petition for Declaratory Order filed by Green Energy Express LLC and 21st Century Transmission Holdings, LLC, in Docket No. EL10-76-000, parties are hereby notified that issues pending in Docket No. EL10-76-000 may be discussed at the technical conference.

This is a FERC Staff lead conference, Commissioners may attend.

CAISO and the parties that choose to participate in the conference should be prepared to address the following topics, among others:
  • How the RTPP incorporates participation from all stakeholders, including the California Transmission Planning Group, and complies with the transmission planning principles of Order No. 890;
  • How the various categories of transmission projects will be defined and differentiated;
  • To what extent non-incumbent transmission developers can sponsor transmission projects identified in the RTPP and become participating transmission owners in the CAISO;
  • The selection criteria for projects in the various transmission categories, including which proposals have priority during the evaluation process;
  • How projects submitted during the 2008/2009 Request Window will be processed, with respect to both the current Tariff and the proposed RTPP; and
  • The integration and coordination of RTPP studies with those done under the Large Generator Interconnection Process, and related assumptions, data, and planning criteria.

A free live webcast is available for this meeting. All webcasts are archived for 3 months.
