Bonneville has published a letter to the region, including supporting documents, on its proposal to sign an Implementation Agreement with the California Independent System Operator and move forward toward joining the Western Energy Imbalance Market (EIM).
The package includes a cover letter from the Administrator, an in-depth policy proposal document, a report of Bonneville’s EIM benefits analysis, and a draft of the Implementation Agreement.
Bonneville requests stakeholder comments on the letter to the region by July 22. Comments should be submitted online at www.bpa.gov/comments. Bonneville will address comments in a Record of Decision scheduled to be published in September. If Bonneville decides to move forward with signing the Implementation Agreement, it will execute the Agreement concurrent with publication of the Record of Decision.
A stakeholder meeting to address clarifying questions on Bonneville’s proposal is scheduled for July 8 from 1-3 pm in Bonneville’s Rates Hearing Room.
