ColumbiaGrid's 2011 System Assessment Published


The final ColumbiaGrid 2011 System Assessment report has been posted. The report analyzes the reliability of the transmission system over the next ten years and identifies areas where there may be reliability issues. Study Teams are formed to address reliability issues when they affect more than one ColumbiaGrid planning participant. As a result of this year’s assessment, no new study teams are proposed. All issues identified in this year’s assessment fit under existing study team efforts. Seven sensitivity studies have been identified and will be reported in the next Biennial Transmission Expansion Plan.
