Description of Subjects/Issues legislative and policy changes require complex decision-making and that Commission become more involved in transmission planning
Purpose/Objective of Rule Recent legislative and policy changes impacted transmission planning significantly by adding criteria other than cost and reliability into consideration. These changes require a more complex decision making proceeding and a closer involvement by the Commission in transmission planning. The Commission seeks to accomplish: (1) closer coordination of electric generation and transmission planning; (2) availability of comprehensive transmission plans to all stakeholders, prepared in a manner that is transparent and takes into account stakeholder input; and (3) streamlining of the proceeding involved with applications for certificates of public convenience and necessity (CPCN) for transmission projects.
