BPA Public Meeting re: NWPP SCED Design Overview and Recommendation
Start Time9/29/2014 1:00 PM
End Time9/29/2014 5:00 PM
Description
BPA is an active participant in the Northwest Power Pool’s ongoing Market Assessment and Coordination Committee (NWPP MC). The MC is a collaboration of 19 public and investor-owned utilities from across the NWPP footprint. It is considering the design for a within-hour energy only market, called a security constrained economic dispatch (SCED), for a subset of NWPP balancing areas (BAs).
 
BPA launched a public process to consider its participation in the SCED design proposal being put together by the NWPP MC. This process began with a kick-off public meeting held Aug. 11, 2014. More than one hundred and fifty-five stakeholders attended the meeting.
 
It is expected that a subset of the BAs in the NWPP footprint may choose to participate in the SCED, and each BA will make its own decision whether or not to participate. BPA will be developing a draft Record of Decision (ROD) in late 2014 and expects to issue a final ROD on its decision to participate in the SCED during 2015.
 
The following topics will be presented and discussed at this meeting:
 
• Inform stakeholders about the proposed NWPP MC SCED design
• Discuss BPA specific issues related to the design
• Listen to customer and stakeholder comments and capture feedback
