Imperial Irrigation District Sues California ISO for Allegedly Squelching Renewable Energy
Jul 24 15
The Imperial Irrigation District has gone to a federal court to seek damages and to stop the California ISO from discouraging renewable energy development in its service area. Having had enough of the California ISO's alleged rough wooing to get the public utility to become a participating transmission owner, the Imperial Irrigation District has gone to a federal court to seek damages and to stop the grid operator from discouraging renewable energy development in its service area. CAISO should be working with IID to tap into its renewable energy resources, to further the state's climate goals, and improve the economic conditions of Imperial County," IID said in a July 16 civil complaint filed with the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California, claiming violations of federal antitrust and California state laws. 'Instead, CAISO has abused its monopoly power for the improper purposes of gaining control over IID's transmission system, obtaining direct access to the abundant renewable energy resources in IID's service area, and crushing IID out of existence'. Specifically, IID claimed renewable developers in the four competitive renewable energy zones within its balancing authority area, or BAA, are unable to obtain adequate transmission service from CAISO. Thus, they are being forced to locate elsewhere in California where they have access and can be assured that investor-owned utilities, or participating transmission owners in CAISO, will sign key power purchase agreements. And the reason for this, IID said, is that CAISO wants to get rid of one of its remaining competitors in the transmission service and operations services markets, given the third-largest public utility in California has repeatedly told the grid operator it has no desire to join as a participating transmission owner, or PTO. IID said the dispute extends back to 2011 when CAISO approved the utility's re-conductoring of Path 42, a 230-kV transmission project that also involved Edison International utility Southern California Edison Co. and was designed to increase the maximum import capability, or MIC, from about 462 MW to 1,400 MW.
