Electric Regional Transmission Organization Hearing

Concerning a transportation legislation review committee hearing on the effects that a retail electric service provider's participation in a regional transmission organization would have in Colorado.
Session:
2017 Regular Session
Subject:

A regional transmission organization is an independent electric transmission operator that provides wholesale transmission services to more than one provider of retail electric service within a defined geographic region by pooling together a number of transmission assets into a single electricity transmission market from which participating retail electric service providers may purchase wholesale transmission services.

The bill directs the transportation legislation review committee to conduct a hearing during the 2017 interim on the effects that participation by retail electric service providers in a regional transmission organization would have on the providers, their ratepayers, and Colorado's market for renewable energy. The hearing must take place on or before December 1, 2017.
