2021 TRANSMISSION AND ANCILLARY SERVICES RATE EXTENSION

2021 RATE EXTENSION – ROCKY MOUNTAIN REGION TRANSMISSION & ANCILLARY SERVICES

The Rocky Mountain Region (RMR) extended its formula rates for LAP transmission and LAP, WACM, & CRSP ancillary services for a 3-year period effective October 1, 2021.  Under a separate minor rate adjustment process, RMR put long-term formula rates for use under the Western Energy Imbalance Service Market in place for this same 3-year period.

On November 12, 2020, WAPA notified the Southwest Power Pool (SPP) that the Upper Great Plains and RMR intend to consider participation in a Regional Transmission Organization (RTO).  Putting these rates in place for a 3-year period will allow time needed for further RTO discussions and decisions.  The expansion of the SPP RTO would have significant impacts on rate methodologies for transmission, ancillary services, and losses.  This 3-year timeframe also provides RMR time to discuss and evaluate what changes would need to be made to the rate methodologies before conducting a major rate adjustment process to put all the necessary formula rates in place for a new 5‑year period.
