ColumbiaGrid taking the role of Northwest Area Coordinator
BPA will begin transitioning its Northwest Area Coordinator role (WECC power flow base case development) to ColumbiaGrid on March 5, 2010. The ColumbiaGrid members determined that the Area Coordinator role would be an appropriate activity for ColumbiaGrid when they adopted the ColumbiaGrid Planning and Expansion Functional Agreement (PEFA) in February of 2007. In May of 2009, BPA sent out a notification letter informing Northwest entities that this transition was being planned.
