BPA Transmission Services provides services for use of the transmission system assets for acceptable telecommunications requests, such as wireless antennas, fiber optic leases, joint use for real estate and rack use in substations, shared use of operational telecommunication systems between BPA and another entity, pole attachments of other types.
BPA provides commercial 'dark fiber' where there is additional capacity (spare fibers) beyond BPA's operational requirements on BPA's fiber network. BPA does not compete with external fiber network providers and only provides service upon customer request.
When space and structural capacity allow, the Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) will consider requests for leasing of space at its facilities for the placement of wireless equipment. Requests are evaluated on a case-by-case basis, with emphasis on BPA's security requirements, available resources, and outage constraints.
