Tx Developers Challenge NYISO, SPP, ISO-NE Order 1000 Filings
Transmission developer LS Power Transmission is protesting Order 1000 compliance filings by NYISO, SPP and ISO-NE, saying they still favor regulated incumbents over independent developers. NextEra Energy also filed a protest in NYISO’s docket.
The protests, submitted last week, are to compliance filings the three regions made in response to Federal Energy Regulatory Commission orders in April and May.
FERC accepted NYISO’s Order 1000 compliance filing in April while denying multiple requests for rehearing. (See FERC Denies Rehearing Requests on NYISO Order 1000 Compliance Filing.)
LS Power praised NYISO for its handling of the stakeholder process, saying it was an “open dialogue that actually valued the exchange of ideas, rather than a perfunctory process, for process sake, that occurred in some regions that oppose Order No. 1000 at the regional planner level.”
