Joint Initiative ATC MOD Squad Strike Team Announces NERC Delays Implementation

On March 4, 2011, Nerc notified all transmission owners and transmission service providers that have selected the MOD-029-1 metholodology that NERC will be delaying the implementation of MOD-029-1 Requirement 2, Sub-Requirement 2.1 for Flow Limited Paths until a modification to the standard can be developed that will mitigate the technical concerns identified by the WestConnect petition.

"Chelan PUD is a strong supporter of ColumbiaGrid and the work that’s accomplished through the transmission Planning and Expansion Functional Agreement (PEFA). As a result of that process, the mid-C utilities (Chelan, Grant and Douglas PUDs) and Bonneville Power Administration were able to reach an agreement that defined the need for a new transmission line, as well as determine who will construct, own and pay for the facility. Those difficult decisions were made successful through the expert and independent expertise of the ColumbiaGrid staff."
