FERC Approves Midwest ISO Tariff

LCG, August 9, 2004--The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) conditionally accepted the Midwest Independent Transmission System Operator Inc.'s (Midwest ISO) proposed Open Access Transmission and Energy Markets Tariff (TEMT) on August 6, 2004. The TEMT includes Day-Ahead and Real-Time energy markets that will incorporate centralized, security-constrained, economic dispatch and LMP-based pricing similar to the operations of PJM, the New York ISO and ISO-New England. The TEMT will include market mitigation based upon conduct and impact thresholds. In an earlier order, the Commission set the Midwest ISO's market implementation date to be March 1, 2005.

The Midwest ISO covers more than 96,000 miles of high voltage transmission lines located in 15 states and one Canadian province. The implementation of the TEMT will alter the market design and competition across a wide expanse, extending from eastern Montana through the upper Midwest - including Manitoba - and south to parts of Kentucky and Missouri. Once the TEMT is implemented, the FERC's Standard Market Design, with LMP-based pricing, will effectively be in use across the northern half of the Eastern Interconnect.
