Washington, D.C. (March 7, 2022)— On Monday, March 7th, Americans for a Clean Energy Grid submitted comments to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) in support of the February 4, 2022 filing by the Midcontinent Independent System Operator, Inc. (MISO). MISO’s filing proposes revisions to the MISO Open Access Transmission, Energy and Operating Reserve Markets Tariff (MISO Tariff) to change the current cost allocation methodology for Multi-Value Projects (MVPs).
The proposed methodology would allow for sub-regional cost allocation for certain MVP projects that provide only sub-regional benefits, which could lead to significant new regional transmission in MISO. ACEG encourages the Commission to approve MISO’s proposed revisions.
