  15. Energy Gateway Project • Facility Staging

  16. EGW Facility Staging • Due to the scope and nature of the EGW project, not all facilities will be constructed during the same period. • As such, facilities will be installed following a segmented approach – focusing on one leg of the project, then another leg, etc. • For example: • Populus – Terminal 345 kV #1 & #2 will be in-service 12/2010 (This project was granted Phase 3 status in 11/2008) • Pinto 345 kV series capacitor (on PNT-HNT 345 kV line) will be in-service 5/2010 • St. George (Utah) SVC will be in-Service in 5/2011

  17. EGW Facility Staging • Rather than initiate technical studies for each transmission segment, it was decided to group transmission segments into two logical project stages that would be evaluated by WECC Phase 2 study group (or sub groups). • Incremental transmission limitations for transmission segments that are added between stages, will be addressed via OTC studies. [This same process was followed by BPA and AVISTA for the West of Hatwai Expansion project.]

  18. EGW Facilities – Stage 1 (1500 MW)

  19. Gateway West – Stage 1 Facilities Hemingway - Bridger

  20. Gateway West – Stage 1 Facilities Bridger - Windstar • The current schedule calls for all Gateway West – Stage 1 facilities will be in-service by 12/2016.

  21. Gateway South – Stage 1 Facilities Aeolus – Mona – So. Nevada • The current schedule calls for all Gateway South – Stage 1 facilities will be in-service by 12/2017.

  22. EGW Facilities – Stage 2 (Full-Build, 3000 MW)

  23. Gateway West – Stage 2 Facilities Hemingway - Bridger

  24. Gateway West – Stage 2 Facilities Bridger - Windstar • The current schedule calls for all Gateway West – Stage 2 facilities will be in-service by 12/2017.

  25. Gateway South – Stage 2 Facilities Aeolus – Mona – So. Nevada • The current schedule calls for all Gateway South – Stage 2 facilities will be in-service by 12/2019.

  26. WECC Phase 2 StudyGroupKick-Off Meeting • Study Area Path Interactions, Study Participants & Study Issues

  27. Study Area Participation • Charts for each Study Areas, which indicate Area Path Interactions, (projected) Study Participants & a drawing of the facilities being evaluated, have been displayed in the meeting room. • Please take time during one of the breaks to review the information and make necessary changes or modifications. • These inputs will help us in move the Phase 2 study efforts forward.

Staging of TOT 2C facilities Each of the SPS schemes in the report will be further refined and added to the Project POS. Continue to evaluate simultaneous interactions among components within the GS Project. Short circuit analysis to quantify impacts on existing breakers in the southern Nevada/Eldorado Valley Gateway South – LADWP Study Issues

  37. Evaluate interaction between GS and TOT 3 (Wyoming – Colorado); additionally GS and DJ-LRS-Ault transmission lines. (Basin Electric) (UPALCO-Carbon 138 kV line): TOT 1A should be monitored and interactions determined in the next phase of studies. (WAPA) When are SSR Studies planned for? (WAPA) Parallel to Phase 2 process, PACE will perform SSR analysis for portions of the Western Interconnection that are effected by the EGW Project. How will PacifiCorp determined if the Harry Allen – Mead 500 kV #2 line should be included in the GS plan-of-service. (TWE) Detailed analysis of the impacts of a new transmission line between Crystal and Mead and the Centennial Project will be evaluated during the Phase 2 studies. Is there a dependent relationship between the PacifiCorp and other project in WECC Phase 2? (TWE) Phase 1 studies demonstrated thatGateway South can achieve its ratings with or without the Great Basin North 500 kV line being constructed. Additional simultaneous analysis for other Western Interconnection paths will be performed during Phase 2 technical studies.  Gateway South – Other Study Issues
