Open access transmission interconnection testimony

A Bates White expert testified in the permitting of Texas/Northeast México’s first high voltage direct current open access transmission interconnection (Sharyland Utilities/Hunt Power). The Public Utility Commission of Texas (PUCT) found no justification for investing ratepayer’s funds in the construction of a 300-MW DC tie between Texas and México’s transmission systems. Proponents raised the project to the consideration of an Administrative Law Judge to seek public funding approval. The Texas ALJ was persuaded by what he said was “particularly persuasive” testimony and recommended the PUCT approve the projects. The tie became operational during the summer of 2007.
