MISO Transmission Customers file appeal with 7th Circuit

The Midwest ISO Northeast Transmission Customers on Dec. 15 filed with the United States Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals for the review of FERC’s order accepting the Midwest ISO’s open access transmission, energy and operating reserve markets tariff.

The tariff establishes region-wide cost allocation for transmission projects deemed to be multi-value projects (MVPs). MVPs “are determined to enable the reliable and economic delivery of energy in support of documented energy policy mandates or laws that address, through the development of a robust transmission system, multiple reliability and/or economic issues affecting multiple transmission zones.”

The MISO Northeast Transmission Customers include Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette, the Association of Businesses Advocating Tariff Equity, Consumers Energy Company, the Detroit Edison Company, the Michigan Municipal Electric Association, and the Michigan Public Power Agency.
