The facilities operated by the ISO that are used to provide Transmission Services under the ISO OATT. Transmission Usage Charge (“TUC”). Payments made by the Transmission Customer to cover the cost of Marginal Losses and, during periods of time when the transmission system is constrained, the marginal cost of Congestion. The TUC is equal to the product of: (1) the LBMP at the POW minus the LBMP at the POI (in $/MWh); and (2) the scheduled or delivered Energy (in MWh). Transmission Wheeling Agreement (“TWA”). The agreements listed in Table 1 of Attachment L to the ISO OATT governing the use of specific or designated transmission facilities that are owned, controlled or operated by an entity for the transmission of electric Energy in interstate commerce.
Transmission Owner. Except as otherwise expressly provided hereunder, Transmission Owner shall be responsible for the costs of maintaining, operating, repairing or replacing the Transmission System, including Transmission Owner’s Interconnection Equipment, Transmission Substation Facilities and Transmission Common Use Facilities.
Transmission Owner. If Local Distribution Company reasonably determines that (i) any of Transmission Owner’s Interconnection Equipment fails to perform in a manner consistent with Good Utility Practice and the Applicable Reliability Standards, Reliability Coordinator and RTO requirements or this Agreement, or (ii) Transmission Owner has failed to perform proper testing or maintenance of its Interconnection Equipment in accordance with Good Utility Practice or this Agreement, Local Distribution Company shall give Transmission Owner written notice to take corrective action. Such written notice shall be provided by Local Distribution Company to Transmission Owner’s Site Representative as soon as practicable upon such determination. If Transmission Owner fails to initiate corrective action promptly and in any event within seven (7) business days after the delivery of such notification, and if in Local Distribution Company’s reasonable judgment leaving Transmission System connected with Local Distribution Company’s Distribution System would create an Emergency, Local Distribution Company may, with as much prior verbal notification to Transmission Owner and Balancing Authority as practicable, open only the Interconnection Point(s) needing corrective action connecting Transmission Owner and Local Distribution Company until appropriate corrective actions have been completed by Transmission Owner, as verified by Local Distribution Company. Local Distribution Company’s judgment with regard to an interruption of service under this Section 3.6.2 shall be made pursuant to Good Utility Practice and subject to Section 3.1.1 hereof. In the case of such interruption, Local Distribution Company shall immediately confer with Transmission Owner regarding the conditions causing such interruption and Transmission Owner’s recommendation concerning timely correction thereof. Both Parties shall act promptly to correct the condition leading to such interruption and to restore the connection and Interconnection Service.
Transmission Owner. Except during an Emergency, Transmission Owner shall not, without prior Local Distribution Company authorization, operate any Local Distribution Company Element including any circuits or related transformers, lines or busses. Transmission Owner shall retain the right to operate such Elements during an Emergency to address an imminent threat to the safety of personnel or to prevent damage to equipment and to maintain the integrity of the Transmission System; provided that Distribution System Elements may not be re-energized by Transmission Owner using the emergency authority provided under this section. When practical, prior to operation of such Elements, Transmission Owner shall provide immediate notice to Local Distribution Company and Balancing Authority. When not deemed practical, such notification should immediately occur upon completion of the Emergency action. Transmission Owner shall not operate any such Elements if upon notice Local Distribution Company expressly refuses to grant permission to Transmission Owner. Within five (5) business days of such Emergency, Transmission Owner shall provide written explanation of such Emergency to Local Distribution Company.
Transmission Owner. As Transmission Owner’s System protection requirements change and as System protection technology advances, Transmission Owner will upgrade its Protective Relay system in accordance with Good Utility Practice. If these upgrades affect the serviceability and acceptability of the Protective Relay Systems on the Interconnection Equipment installed, owned, and operated by Local Distribution Company, Local Distribution Company must (at its own expense) upgrade its Protective Relay systems as necessary to bring them into compatibility with, and adopt the technological standards of, the Protective Relay Systems installed by Transmission Owner. Transmission Owner shall give Local Distribution Company notice of any such upgrade as soon as practicable prior to the anticipated date of such upgrade.
Transmission Owner. A signatory to this Agreement which transfers functional control related to the rates, terms and conditions of the OATT to SPP by executing this Agreement or appoints SPP under another agreement to provide service under the Transmission Tariff over Tariff Facilities which it owns or controls.
