7 Western Electricity Coordinating Council Seams Issues Subcommittee Chair, Jerry Smith (AZPS) Report of Findings Seams Issues Evaluation California Independent System Operator Market Redesign and Technology Upgrade

8 Western Electricity Coordinating Council Why an Evaluation? SIS Mission is to Identify, Evaluate, and Propose Solutions to Seams Issues in the WECC Cal ISO MRTU Conditionally accepted by FERC Member concerns about potential seams issues FERC Technical Conference on Seams Issues held December 2006 in Phoenix – SIS Chair, Jerry Smith reported SIS evaluation already underway

9 Western Electricity Coordinating Council SIS Findings Congestion Management Real-time congestion management issues exist in the WECC today, are an interconnection-wide issue, and are not specifically related to MRTU. Resource Adequacy Resources The CISOs treatment of export schedules under MRTU is consistent with general operating practice in the WECC. Market Timing/E-Tagging/Scheduling MRTU does not create any new seams issues related either to e-tagging or market timelines.

10 Western Electricity Coordinating Council SIS Findings Congestion Revenue Rights The SIS does not find specific new seams issues related to CRRs. LMP impact on System Operations The current system monitoring processes in the WECC are sufficient to maintain the integrity of the interconnection. Parallel Operations during Cutover The SIS is satisfied the FERC required Readiness Certification, that will include a Cutover and Reversion Plan, should be sufficient to address concerns related to a failure of the MRTU software.

11 Western Electricity Coordinating Council SIS Overall Conclusion The SIS finds no specific seams issues, appropriate for regional solutions, that are either created by MRTU or existing seams issues that are substantially worsened by MRTU implementation.

12 Western Electricity Coordinating Council WHY DOES THE BOARD CARE?? California ISO – Market Redesign and Technology Upgrade –The SIS has done its homework on MRTU The implementation of MRTU will create no new regional seams issues which could affect reliability of the Interconnection FERC stated concerns with the implementation of MRTU –Concerns have been addressed

13 Western Electricity Coordinating Council Market Issues Subcommittee Chair, Phil Tice (DGTM) FERC Order 890 Activities Conditional Firm Strawman Business Practice

14 Western Electricity Coordinating Council FERC Order 890 Preventing Undue Discrimination and Preference in Transmission Service Purpose of MIC Facilitation WECC has over 40 registered Transmission Service Providers Tariff is an individual company responsibility Coordination and sharing of information to gain common understandings and promote consistency

15 Western Electricity Coordinating Council FERC Order 890 Preventing Undue Discrimination and Preference in Transmission Service MIC Meeting Agenda in March, June, and October 2007 MIC Sponsored Open Mic Conference Calls –July 17 –August 1 –August 21

16 Western Electricity Coordinating Council FERC Order 890 Conditional Firm Transmission Service Conditional Firm Task Force (CFTF) Co-Chaired by Lauren Nichols-Kinas (BPAT) Transmission Providers and Customers including advocates for wind energy Consulted with FERC staff and members of the financing community Close collaboration with WestConnect

17 Western Electricity Coordinating Council FERC Order 890 Conditional Firm Transmission Service Principle purposes of the Strawman –Meet the FERC requirement for TSPs to coordinate on developing Conditional Firm –Encourage consistency across TSPs –Give TSPs a good starting point for individual tariff business practices –Provide potential users of conditional firm service with as much clarity as possible
