Snohomish PUD, along with a group of Northwest customers, developed a White Paper to help explain the Resale Market in the Northwest and the impacts of potential NAESB standards
The White Paper was presented and discussed at a regional meeting on Thursday, May 8
Due to the time constraints involved in the drafting process, the White Paper is still undergoing regional approval
This presentation is meant as a high-level preview of that White Paper to help put some context to the deeper discussion on Resale mechanics anticipated today
Some concepts, such as how NT customers participate in the Resale market, while not specifically opposed, have also not been individually endorsed by any particular utility or customer and may be subject to change in the final White Paper draft
