MISO Rate Protocols: Time to Prepare for Detailed Inspection (hot topic)

As more transmission owners utilize formula rates for transmission cost recovery and transmission investment continues to increase, the impact of formula rates on ratepayers is increasingly significant. Additionally, state commissions have been vocal challengers to several transmission owner formula rate protocols, claiming the protocols are insufficient to ensure just and reasonable rates.

This hot topic discusses areas related to formula rates which FERC is considering and what transmission owners should expect as a result of FERC’s increased scrutiny.
