3 The existing TOA requires coordination between the TOs and ISO on some issues, and between the TOs and NESCOE on others As part of this coordination, and as mentioned at the last TC meeting, the TOs have shared the proposed enhancements with the States, NESCOE, and ISO-NE; and received feedback. NEPOOL Counsel was invited to the discussions and attended. At todays meeting, we are sharing the proposed enhancements with the broader stakeholder group … and hope to receive helpful feedback Introduction, Discussions to Date 6/1/2014 3

4 Order 1000 requires the following changes to existing transmission planning and cost allocation processes: 1.Transmission needs driven by Public Policy Requirements must be considered in regional and local transmission planning. 2.The regional transmission plan must reflect a fair consideration of transmission facilities proposed by non-incumbents. 3.Cost Allocation method must be defined and established for reliability, economic and public policy projects. Participant funding not allowed as default. 4.Inter-regional Transmission Planning must be addressed. Transmission Providers (ISO-NE and New England TOs) must submit compliance filings with FERC on October 11, 2012 and for inter-regional planning, on April 11, 2013. FERC Order 1000 Requirements 6/1/2014 4

5 1.TOs along with ISOs have compliance filing obligations 2.TOs have authority/responsibilities related to costs, cost allocation (granted TOs by statute, subject to TOA) 3.Through the TOA, TOs have provided the ISO with certain authority to provide regional planning services, and the TOA has limitations on delegation of that authority 4.To comply with Order 1000, the revised planning process must satisfy open/transparent requirements of Order 890 5.Both the TOs and the ISO have to agree to changes to right to build provisions in the TOA subject to Mobile-Sierra protection 6/1/2014 5 TO Responsibilities* TOs are looking for a collaborative and effective solution thru which their responsibilities can be satisfied *In addition, the TOA requires the TOs to coordinate with NESCOE and the ISO on proposed changes to regional cost allocation

6 Examples of Stakeholder Interests NESCOE / States: Authority to define public policy Authority to define benefits for default cost allocation Establish selection criteria Authority over commitment to proposed projects Lead role in generation/NTA solicitation* Key role in cost allocation Knowledge of total costs and customer impacts ISO-NE: Order 1000, 890 compliance Clearly defined process for administering the evaluation PP need, project selection Efficiency of regional planning processes for all project types 6/1/2014 6 NE TOs efforts to date have been focused on satisfying stakeholder interests. NEPOOL: Order 1000, 890 compliance Opportunity for input/feedback on proposed processes Full understanding of new planning process prior to filing Stakeholder review of filings Accommodation of participation by qualified non- incumbents Opportunity for stakeholder input, once process is in use. NE TOs: Maintaining separate, efficient reliability planning process Ensuring open, transparent, fair, efficient planning Transmission planning separate from, but synchronized with consideration of generation Order 1000, 890 compliance; while recognizing TOs filing obligations *to the extent not addressed by markets.

7 TOs see many positive features in NESCOE Proposal 1.States are actively involved in the process, and are working jointly through NESCOE 2.States have an active role in defining key aspects of the process including defining public policy and selecting solutions 3.Recognizes that needs and roles must be defined for the process to work effectively 4.States commit to solutions and accept cost responsibility following study completion – if projects/solutions satisfy their criteria 5.Acknowledges that cost responsibility should be commensurate with perceived benefits 6.Recognizes need for Stakeholder involvement in the planning process, e.g. PAC participation These positive attributes have influenced the TOs development of an enhanced, comprehensive proposal. 6/1/2014 7

8 8 1.Address ROFR, new entrant criteria for public policy process/projects – PTOs are prepared to waive Mobile-Sierra rights in conjunction with an agreement on a mutually acceptable public policy transmission planning process 2.Improve clarity and definition of core process components* 3.Preserve ISO-NEs traditional role as an independent planning & process administrator 4.Maintain existing separate reliability planning process 5.Enable the efficient identification of preferred solutions … while retaining States/NESCOEs authority over commitment to solution 6.Separate transmission planning from consideration of generation, while recognizing that synchronization is needed 7.Identify default cost allocation, with option for state override 8.Include progressive cost estimate accuracy / expectations (similar to current PP4) 9.Create a more comprehensive proposal Proposed TO Enhancements: *Satisfaction of open and transparent principles of Order 890; Clear and early definition of public policy to be satisfied by regional planning process; Transparent development of a planning procedure for public policy; Earlier identification, publication, and commitment to assessment parameters and selection criteria for competing public policy projects/solutions 6/1/2014

12 Key Aspects of Enhanced Proposal 1.Public Policy economic evaluation of generation & market alternative potential performed early 2.NESCOE/States have decisional authority to: – Define: public policy requirements and the criteria to meet them – Define benefits for default cost allocation – Specify the project selection criteria – Opt-out of the preferred solution where public policy will be satisfied via alternative means – Adopt an alternate cost allocation. 3.Establish a new public policy asset type, planning procedure, default cost allocation* – distinct from reliability. 4.ISO performs a public policy needs assessment 5.ISO has authority over planning-related decisions (base case, scenarios, etc.), similar to current reliability process 6.Submittal of solutions potentially open to incumbents and qualified non- incumbents 7.States make a commitment decision for preferred solution(s) - avoiding multiple iterations/studies by ISO-NE and potential delays to reliability planning. 8.Progressive cost estimate accuracy / expectations (similar to current PP4) 12 *But states may establish solution-specific alternate. 6/1/2014

13 Details of the Enhanced Process 13 6/1/2014

14 Box 0: Create New Planning Procedure Key Components: 1.ISO-NE, in coordination with TOs, writes a new public policy project planning procedure* 2.Addresses roles and responsibilities i.e.: NESCOE/States, ISO-NE, project proponents, PAC stakeholders 3.Defines process including: Quantification of public policy requirements Needs assessment process** Submittal of proposals, qualifications of sponsors Quality of submittals, evaluation process, selection criteria Cost level accuracy Interface with 10 year RSP 14 Key Outputs: New ISO-NE Planning Procedure for PP Not filed at FERC *Planning Procedure Periodically Updated. **Different than reliability. Key Decision Maker(s): ISO-NE Focus of Enhancements: Reliability Planning – not disrupted Order 1000 – PP planning procedure established Order 890 - openness, transparency Fair, effective – rules of game identified in advance, neutral party administering

15 Box 1: Economic Assessment of Generation Key Components: 1.Similar to economic studies performed under Attachment K … 2.Enhanced to address public policy economic study needs of States/NESCOE 3.States/NESCOE provide guidance, e.g. evaluation of renewable generation type, quantity, location scenarios 4.Repeated each cycle 15 Key Outputs: LMPs, Production Costs Other benefits, key findings Results used to enable execution of next box, i.e. public policy transmission requirements, assessment metrics, selection criteria Key Decision Maker(s): States, NESCOE Focus of Enhancements: Similar to State/NESCOE proposal

16 Box 2: Define Public Policy Transmission Requirements, Assessment Metrics, Selection Criteria Key Components: 1.Define new asset type: New transmission project derived from public policy needs assessment Not necessarily aligned with current PTF definition* 2.States/NESCOE define state-controlled public policy transmission requirements; identify assessment metrics, selection criteria (including benefits). 3.ISO-NE writes Public Policy Requirements Guidance Paper** 16 Key Outputs: PP Requirements Guidance Paper, including: PP to be addressed by process Benefits (basis for default cost allocation) Assessment Metrics for Needs Assessment Selection Criteria for comparing proposals *PTF definition altered (for PP only) or new category established (PPPTF?). **Public Policy Guidance Paper periodically updated and used to satisfy paragraph 209 of Order 1000 which requires transmission providers to post explanation of PP requirements that will be evaluated for potential solutions in the transmission planning process. Focus of Enhancements: Order 1000 – identification of PP, which is needed to identify benefits Order 890 - openness, transparency NESCOE/States substantive interests – in charge of critical decisions Fair, effective – establish rules of the game early Key Decision Maker(s): NESCOE

17 Box 3: Establish Transmission Planning Base Case, Assumptions, Scenarios Key Components: 1.ISO-NE defines transmission planning base case assumptions for subsequent Needs Assessment, e.g. Load growth Topology Contingencies modeling 2.ISO-NE, with input from the stakeholder process develops transmission planning scenarios and assumptions as required - normal PAC process, e.g. Fuel prices Retirements Generator Locations 17 Key Outputs: Transmission Planning Base Case Defined Fundamental Inputs, Assumptions Defined Required Scenarios, Sensitivities Key Decision Maker(s): ISO-NE Focus of Enhancements: Order 890 - openness, transparency Fair, effective Rules of game identified in advance Neutral party administering Consistency across subsequent submittals

18 Box 4: Perform Transmission Needs Assessment, Identify Generic Requirement Key Components: 1.ISO-NE performs transmission needs assessment, using: NESCOEs previously defined requirements Transmission base case, assumptions, scenarios from prior step 2.Identify transmission needs driven by Public Policy, e.g.: Generic/approximate source location Generic/approximate delivery location Constrained interfaces inhibiting delivery that must be addressed, by: o Bypassing, or o Expanding interfaces 3.Review with PAC, receive stakeholder feedback 18 Key Outputs: Source and delivery locations Constrained interfaces Generic solution(s) Notification: initiation of solution study phase Key Decision Maker(s): ISO-NE Focus of Enhancements: Order 890 - openness, transparency Fair, effective – rules of game identified in advance, neutral party administering

19 Box 5: Submittal, Identification of Possible Solutions, Apply Filter Key Components 1.Potentially open to incumbents and qualified non-incumbents* 2.Multi-level filter With Order 1000 exclusions Qualification of sponsors (legal, financial, technical) Quality of data submission Initial high-level feasibility of project to satisfy public policy need 19 Key Outputs: Proposals that do not pass the filter Proposals that pass the filter Sponsors identified Cost estimate quality per PP4 (-50%/+200%, concept) Key Decision Maker(s): ISO-NE Focus of Enhancements: Order 1000 – PP planning procedure established, potential for ROFR to be addressed, proponent & project qualifications addressed Order 890 - openness, transparency Fair, effective – previously identified rules of game followed, neutral party administering *ROFR for PP and qualification for non-incumbents addressed in more detail separately.

20 Box 6: Evaluate Potential Solutions, Identify Preliminary Preferred Solution(s) Key Components: 1.ISO-NE works with project sponsors, impacted TOs to evaluate submittals for their ability to satisfy PP needs defined in the Needs Assessment 2.ISO-NE applies PP Guidance Paper selection criteria to all submitted/accepted projects 3.Evaluate system impacts of the PP project on reliability: positive or negative 4.Identify preliminary preferred transmission solution 5.Determine if any planned reliability upgrades are made unnecessary by preliminary preferred PP project 6.Stakeholder/PAC review 20 Key Outputs: Preliminary Preferred Solution Preliminary adverse impact determination Reliability Displacement Cost estimate quality per PP4 (-50%/+200%, concept) Key Decision Maker(s): ISO-NE Focus of Enhancements: Order 1000 – PP planning procedure followed Order 890 - openness, transparency Fair, effective – previously identified rules of game followed, neutral party administering, projects/proponents treated consistently

21 Box 7: More Rigorous Assessment, Select Preferred Solution, in RSP as Provisional Planned Project Key Components: 1.Incorporate stakeholder input from prior step. 2.More detailed project information from proponent 3.Deeper technical analysis, e.g. stability, etc. 4.Assess I.3.9-like adverse impacts 5.Refine assessment of planned reliability upgrade made unnecessary 6.Refine cost estimates 7.ISO-NE identifies preferred transmission solution 8.Stakeholder/PAC review 21 Key Outputs: Preferred Solution Identified Reliability displacements known Adverse impacts considered, known In RSP as Provisional Planned Public Policy Project Cost estimate quality per PP4 (-25%/+50%, proposed) Key Decision Maker(s): ISO-NE Focus of Enhancements: Order 1000 – PP planning procedure followed Order 890 - openness, transparency Fair, effective – previously identified rules of game followed, neutral party administering, projects/proponents treated consistently

22 Box 8: State Commitment Decision; Default Cost Allocation Unless Alternate Specified Key Components: 1.States make commitment decision on ISO-NE identified preferred PP solution within pre- defined time period 2.Cost allocation determined: default (tbd*) or at state discretion alternative agreed to 3.For other than an all-states-in decision coupled with the default (tbd*) cost allocation, each state will make a finding public that includes: Expected means of compliance with public policy requirements Explanation of how cost responsibility is roughly commensurate with benefits 22 Key Outputs: States Opt In or Out Cost allocation established State findings address expected means of compliance, alignment of benefits & costs Cost estimate quality per PP4 (-25%/+50%, proposed) Key Decision Maker(s): States, NESCOE Focus of Enhancements: Order 1000 – benefits based cost allocation Order 890 - openness, transparency Efficiency, Effectiveness – process has clear end, avoids unnecessary iterations *Possible default cost allocations addressed in more detail separately.

23 Box 9: In the RSP as Planned Project, Rest of Process 23 Key Components: 1.I.3.9/PPA approval No adverse impact RC vote 2.In RSP as Planned PP Project 3.Proceed thru remainder of planning process Key Outputs: I.3.9/PPA outcome In RSP as Planned PP Project Cost estimate quality per PP4 (-25%/+25%, planned) Key Decision Maker(s): ISO-NE Focus of Enhancements: NA
