SPP is preparing for the Environmental Protection Agency’s Clean Power Plan by beginning outreach to state officials and planning to form a task force under its Strategic Planning Committee.
The RTO scheduled a two-hour webinar to kick off the effort on Friday, Sept. 18. Lanny Nickell, SPP’s engineering vice president and point man for CPP compliance, told the SPC during its August meeting that all 14 states in the RTO’s footprint have been invited.
While there have been no requests for SPP to develop a plan or trading rules, the RTO says a regional approach would be easier to implement.
