Dynegy Executes Agreements with the PJM System Operatorand Midwest Independent System Operator to Move the Majority of Dynegy's Hennepin Power Station's Energy and Capacity to the PJM Market from MISO

Dynegy has executed agreements with the PJM System Operator(PJM) and the Midwest Independent System Operator (MISO) to move the majority of Dynegy's Hennepin Power Station's energy and capacity to the PJM market from MISO. the Company noted that the five-year transmission service agreements - which require no upfront investment, only modest annual fees associated with transporting power into PJM - may be extended indefinitely at Dynegy's request and are a result of three years of effort to procure transmission service out of MISO. Per the agreement, 260 megawatts (MW) of Hennepin's 290 MW capacity will be available for sale into PJM effective June 1, 2017. Dynegy reported that the pathway to PJM is consistent with its overall objective of moving all of the Company's Illinois generating assets from MISO to PJM.

FERC Accepts Order No. 1000 Interregional Filings by Southwest Power Pool Inc. and Midcontinent Independent System Operator Inc

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission accepted Order No. 1000 interregional filings by Southwest Power Pool Inc. and Midcontinent Independent System Operator Inc. The two regions agreed on many revisions to their joint operating agreement (JOA) related to transmission coordination but disagreed on certain cost allocation methods that must be addressed in further compliance filings. Order No. 1000 requires neighboring transmission planning regions to identify and jointly evaluate interregional transmission facilities, which are facilities located in two or more neighboring transmission planning regions that may be more efficient or cost-effective solutions to the transmission needs of individual regions. It does not require an interregional transmission plan or interconnection-wide planning. Given their disagreement on interregional cost allocation, SPP and MISO filed competing proposals. Present order accepts both filings' proposed use of adjusted production costs to measure benefits in allocating the costs of interregional transmission facilities addressing economic needs. To allocate the costs of an interregional transmission facility meant to address reliability needs, the order accepts SPP's proposal to use a combination of avoided cost and adjusted production cost savings. MISO proposed to use only adjusted production cost and so was given 60 days to file revisions to its version of the JOA to adopt SPP's costs allocation method. Neither proposed an acceptable cost allocation method for interregional transmission facilities addressing regional transmission needs driven by public policy requirements. The order gives the grid operators 60 days to file a new cost allocation method for such projects. Present order notes, however, that to the extent SPP and MISO propose different interregional cost allocation methods for interregional transmission facilities addressing regional transmission needs driven by reliability, economics, and public policy requirements than accepted in the order, the Commission will address those proposed interregional cost allocation methods in the order on compliance.
