Snapshot of Major Transmission Proposals and Status of Transmission Planning
Presenters: Paul Arnold and Jeff Miller
ColumbiaGrid is making good progress on its Developmental and Staffing Reliability Functional Agreement (ACE Diversity Interchange, Reliability Redispatch, Outage Coordination, enhanced system Visibility)
As of October 29, 2007, ColumbiaGrid’s Planning Function is almost completely staffed with the addition of Jeff Miller—VP and Manager of Planning
ColumbiaGrid’s open, transparent, single system planning process is up and running and we are coordinating with Interested Parties and Sub-Regional Planning GroupsColumbiaGrid Activities
When a non-PEFA party sponsors a project that potentially affects PEFA parties, ColumbiaGrid will participate in the planning process chosen by that party (e.g., Northern Tier Transmission Group [NTTG] process)
PEFA and non-PEFA parties may establish joint study teams (e.g., where there are alternative proposals or an intent to jointly develop a project to meet the needs of multiple systems)
ColumbiaGrid is a member and actively participates in sub-regional and regional planning groups and forums (e.g., WECC Transmission Expansion Planning Policy Committee [TEPPC])ColumbiaGrid Sub-Regional Planning Principles
