NESCOE Submission Regarding Transmission Needs Driven by State and Federal Public Policy Requirements
May 1, 2017
Pursuant to Section 4A.1 of Attachment K of the ISO New England Inc. (“ISO-NE”) Open Access Transmission Tariff (the “OATT”), the New England States Committee on Electricity (“NESCOE”) hereby provides this submission to ISO-NE regarding transmission needs driven by state and federal Public Policy Requirements (“PPRs”).
NESCOE has carefully considered the input that members of the ISO-NE Planning Advisory Committee (the “Stakeholders”) have provided regarding state or federal policy-driven transmissions needs. NESCOE is not requesting that ISO-NE initiate a Public Policy Transmission Study in the current planning cycle. NESCOE has determined that, at this time and for the reasons discussed below, there are no state or federal PPRs “driving transmission needs relating to the New England Transmission System.
