Spiegel Attorneys Advise Clients to Take Advantage of Order 1000 Stakeholder Process Prior to Compliance Filings

July 6, 2012

The newsletter discusses the importance of the ongoing stakeholder consultation process leading up to this October’s OATT regional planning and cost allocation compliance filings.

By October 11, 2012, all public utility transmission providers (TP) will have to revise their Open Access Transmission Tariffs (OATT) to include regional transmission planning processes and cost allocation methodologies in compliance with FERC Order 1000, as recently reaffirmed in Order 1000-A.  The Order 1000 stakeholder process and associated TP compliance filing are likely to have a significant impact on future transmission planning in your region, as well as allocation of the costs of projects selected as part of the regional planning process for regional cost allocation.
