Transmission Control Agreement Caiso

This settlement agreement will be concluded from March 15, 2000 by and between the operator of the Independent System of California (“CAISO”), the Northern California Power Agency (“NCPA”) and the Pacific Gas and Electric Company (“PG-E”), “Party” and collectively “Parties”. The terms used for the initial capitalization in this agreement and the timetables attached to them have the following meanings. The terms used for the first capitalization in this agreement and the timetables attached to it, but not defined below, have, as long as they are defined in Appendix A of the ISO tariff, the meanings that are set out in it. The singular must contain the plural and vice versa. “Include” or “include” means “included, but restricted.” References to a section, article or calendar are a section, article or list of this agreement, unless another agreement or other instrument is established. Unless otherwise in context, references to a statute are considered references to a statute that is amended, replaced or renewed from time to time. Unless the context requires something else, any reference to a “person” includes any person, partnership, company, corporation, corporation, joint venture, trust company, association, organization or other entity, in all cases, whether or not it has a separate interest in the business, to enter into the transmission control agreement with CAISO. In addition to the transformation of existing rights covered in point 16.1.4 and with the exception of Clause 4.3.1.3, the new participating NB must ensure operational control of all equipment and authorizations that: (1) meet the functional criteria of ferC for determining which transmission devices should be placed under the operational control of CAISO; (2) meet the criteria set out by the CAISO Board of Directors, which define the transmission equipment for which CAISO should take operational control; and (3) are the subject of reciprocal agreements between CAISO and the participating TOs.

The main objective of the transmission plan is to identify and describe the best restriction solutions in the controlled grid. Transmission solutions include both new transmission equipment, upgrades or additions of existing transmission equipment proposed, taken into account and/or specified in the overall transmission plan during Phase 2 to meet the needs identified by CAISO. Alternatives to transmission solutions are called non-transmission solutions.

Solutions that meet an identified need can be either transmission or non-transmission solutions. CAISO will analyze the need for transmission solutions in accordance with the methods and criteria set out in Section 24, the Transmission Control Agreement and applicable business practice manuals. The overall transmission plan will identify transmission equipment that meets the requirements to be included in the transmission plan and the transmission solutions needed (1) to maintain system reliability; (2) to meet the requirements of an ease of interconnecting location-limitation resources; (3) maintaining the simultaneous feasibility of long-term revenue rights allocated for crr overload; (4) are identified as additional components or extensions to LGIP network upgrades (large generator interconnection procedures) pursuant to Clause 24.4.6.5; (5) compliance with requirements and guidelines of the state, municipalities, counties and federal policies, including standards for renewable portfolios; and (6) reduce congestion costs, production costs, transmission losses or other electrical supply costs resulting from improved access to low-cost resources.
