  • Regional Transmission Corridors Energy Summit 2010 Ports-to-Plains Alliance Broomfield, CO April 9, 2010
  • Topics Today’s Transmission System Renewable Energy Transmission Planning Proposed Projects Conceptual Plans Issues to Address
  • Tri-State G&T Tri-State is a member owned, not-for-profit, generation and transmission cooperative 44 member owners across Wyoming, Colorado, Nebraska and New Mexico Our Members serve a population of 1.4 million Tri-State owns 5,300 miles of HV transmission Another 1,300 miles planned over the next 10 years Tri-State has revamped its interconnection process to expedite the connection of new generation to its system View slide

  • Southwest Power Pool Transmission
  • Another Way To Look At It Winter Peak Load Spring/Fall Load Valleys Summer Peak Load Data: 08/2003 to 08/2004
  • Utilization Dictates Transmission Rates (HPX) RENEWABLES-ONLY MIX OF RESOURCES $25 NM-AZ @ $5.00/kW-mo TRANSMISSION RATE $/MWh CO-NM @ $4.00/kW-mo $20 WY-CO @ $3.25/kW-mo EFFECTIVE $/MWH RAT $15 $10 $5 $- 30% 40% 50% 60% 70% 80% 90% TRANSMISSION LINE UTILIATION How to Improve Transmission Utilization • Geographic Diversity (wind in multiple locations) • Blending wind with solar and other renewables • Use of gas-fired generation for “firming” and meeting load

  • Local Market versus Export Market Estimated wind energy potential exceeds local needs. NREL estimate of Ports-to-Plains states: 5 to 9 million MW US installed generating capacity 2008 (all fuels) 1.1 million MW Everyone wants to export to either California or southeast States are trying to be first to market: Competing with each other for economic development opportunities Want to change transmission planning philosophy to focus on wind export in addition to reliability Export scenarios will put tremendous stress on existing transmission built primarily to serve local load. Electric system stability will limit installed wind generation installation to a fraction of the theoretical capability.
  • Gateway West—Idaho power and Rocky Mountain Power (PacifiCorp)
  • SunZia Southwest Transmission Project
  • Tres Amigas
  • SPP Expansion Plan
  • National Grid “Overlay” Concept
  • The “Battleground” Issues Who pays (cost allocation)? Customers, generators, utilities, or taxpayers Should local customers/utilities pay for export lines? States Rights vs. National/Regional/Customer Interests Permitting, siting, and economic development Interstate commerce Who Plans, Owns & Manages the Grid? Planning Issues Oversizing Transmission for Optimized Land Use & Economies of Scale National Grid Overlay Green Transmission Lines
