Change in Transmission Planning Processes and Cost Allocation Methods

FERC's Order 1000 mandates regional planning for jurisdictional utilities (those obligated to follow FERC mandates). It has generated a lot of anger amongst people because it appears to undercut state authority over these same utilities. Traditionally FERC has had authority over high voltage transmission and state commissions over understate transmission. A mandate would mean that each state no longer decide independently.

Regional plan could result in regulating a state utility to build (and its customers pay for) transmission lines that do not benefit that state population with recent court case determining that FERC cannot fine a power marketing agency (PMA) such as Bonneville Power Administration or ERCOT. FERC's ability to enforce regional planning with those entities is limited; however it will be difficult for regional planning to be anything more than form over substances.

In this conference, expert speaker Ann Fisher will explain the meaning and expected impact of FERC's Order 1000. Ann will discuss how public transmission utilities will have to participate in a regional transmission planning process. Further, regional transmission planning processes must be driven by public policy requirements established by state or federal laws or regulations. Ann will also talk about limitations of FERC's enforcement against non-jurisdictional entities.
