We provide transmission advisory services for merchant transmission clients, state commissions, and RTO clients.
For merchant transmission clients, we have served as an independent monitor for open seasons and open solicitations. That work included designing and monitoring both the open season allocation process consistent with FERC precedent and open solicitation process consistent with FERC’s January 2013 Policy Statement. Our goal is to ensure that our clients’ projects are fully subscribed and are conducted in an open and transparent manner.
We also frequently advise other clients on transmission issues. As part of our work as independent evaluators for resource decisions, we assess the assumptions and impacts of transmission costs on the competing proposals. We also assist other clients with transmission cost allocation design issues.
