Representative Hansen introduced House Bill 17-1225. The bill directs the TLRC to conduct a hearing before December 1, 2017, on the effects that participation in a regional transmission organization (RTO) by Colorado retail electric service providers would have on:



• retail electric service providers, whether or not they participate in the RTO;

• Colorado's electricity markets; and

• ratepayers.



This bill defines an RTO as an independent electric transmission operator providing wholesale transmission services to more than one retail electric service provider within a region, which pools transmission assets into a single electricity transmission market from which participating retail electric service providers may purchase wholesale transmission services.



03:16 PM -- Ms. Heidi Morgan, representing Black Hills Energy, testified regarding an amendment.
