MISO’s New Cost Allocation Process: How will Public Power and Cooperatives Fare? (white paper)

MISO transmission owners are currently developing new criteria and cost allocation methods for market efficiency projects. The new criteria could include lowering the voltage level threshold from the current 345 kV to a lower level, which would increase the number of transmission projects open to competitive bidding. However, this may exacerbate the existing problem of underinvestment by public power and G&Ts in MISO. Thus, public power, G&Ts and T&D cooperatives need to be aggressive and propose creative solutions they can own to partially offset increasing transmission tariffs in their local pricing zones.
