Initial

Initial

  • When:

    • “Soon” after Project Made Public

  • Where:

    • Send to WECC Staff and TSS

  • Content:

    • Physical Description

    • Planned Operating Date

    • Project Status –

    • Ownership

    • Contact

  • Coordinate with Project Coordination Process


Comprehensive

Comprehensive

  • When:

    • At an “Opportune” Point in Project Schedule

  • Where:

    • Send to WECC Staff and TSS

  • Objectives:

    • Allow Meaningful Review and Input

    • Allow changes to Schedule based on Input

    • Demonstrate Compliance with Standards and Criteria


Comprehensive report content

Comprehensive Report Content

  • Initial Progress Report Requirements

  • Geographic Diagram

  • Modeling Details

  • Transfer Capability, impacts to other paths, etc.

  • Description of System Conditions

  • Operating Conditions

  • Non-Simultaneous and Simultaneous Interactions

    • Don’t have to identify mitigation

  • List of Studies

  • Study Results, Plots, Contingencies

  • Milestone Schedule

    • Allow for TSS Monitoring


Supplemental progress report

Supplemental Progress Report

  • When:

    • Submitted Annually

  • Where:

    • Send to WECC Staff and TSS

  • Objective:

    • Reporting of Non-Significant Changes:

      • Plan of Service

      • Capacity

      • In-Service Dates

  • Content:

    • Initial Progress Report Requirements

    • Changes to Comprehensive Report


Review

Review

  • Submit by March 1 Annually

  • WECC Staff Compiles Reports

  • Members Encouraged to Review

    • Send comments to sponsor with copy to WECC

  • If Report not Submitted, or Found Non-Compliant:

    • Sent to TSS for Review

  • TSS Review Required:

    • Ad-Hoc Committee Formed

  • Further Review:

    • TSS request additional studies


Waiver process

Waiver Process

1. The project sponsor includes a list of projects for which waiver is requested in a separate section in its Annual Progress Report to the TSS with a copy to WECC staff; or

2. If the request for waiver is needed before the next Annual Progress Report is to be submitted, the project sponsor submits a request to WECC staff with copy to TSS.

3. The following project information shall be included, as a minimum:

a. Project name

b. Project purpose

c. Brief Project description, including expected termination points

d. Expected date of release to operations

e. Expected operating voltage

f. Explanation of why the Project is not expected to have a significant impact on the operation of the WECC interconnected electric system.

4. WECC staff posts the list of projects and notifies the PCC, TEPPC, and TSS. The waiver is granted unless a letter from a WECC member opposing the waiver is received within 30 days.

5. Any WECC member(s) that believes the project should not be granted a waiver must submit a letter to the PCC chair with a copy to the project sponsor and WECC staff within 30 calendar days of the posting of the list. The letter must outline the reason(s) for not granting the waiver and include a request that the project proceeds with the Project Coordination Process.

6. WECC staff posts the letter opposing the waiver and notifies the PCC, TEPPC, and TSS.

7. The PCC chair determines if the waiver will be granted within 20 calendar days of posting the letter opposing the waiver. If the project sponsor is also the PCC chair, such determination will be made by the PCC vice chair.


Issues

Issues

  • Implementation

    • Effectiveness

    • Content

    • Schedule

    • Review

  • Oversight

    • Progress Reports; WECC Staff & TSS

    • Project Coordination: PCC, TEPPC

    • Path Rating: PRG, PCC,

  • Waiver

    • “Significant Transmission Project”

    • All Projects over 200kV Must Go Through Project Coordination

    • Burden on PCC Chair


Implementation

Implementation

  • Effectiveness

    • Useful and Informative (if read)

    • TSS Venue

  • Content

    • Bright Lines (200kV / 200 MW) OK

    • Initial & Supplemental OK

    • Comprehensive overly prescriptive?

    • Additional Language Needed

      • SPG’s, PRG’s

      • Processes Related to Waivers

  • Schedule

    • OK


Oversight

Oversight

  • Project Coordination: PCC, TEPPC

  • Path Rating: PRG, PCC

  • Progress Reports: TSS

    • Group Agreed TSS is Appropriate

    • Reports Sent to TSS

    • Informal Reports to PCC


Waiver

Waiver

  • Voltage Level

    • 200kV Bright Line OK

  • Need to Define “Significant”

    • Impacts to other systems

    • Impacts on flow of energy?

    • Impacts on Transfer paths?

    • Phase shifter(s) Involved?

    • Connected to other utilities systems?

  • Process

    • 30 Day Review Sufficient?

    • Process for Objections

    • Once Waived Always Waived?

  • PCC Responsibility

    • PCC Chair Burden May be OK – need further discussion
