Local Transmission Owner Planning Process
The NYISO's Comprehensive System Planning Process (CSPP) begins with the Local Transmission Owner Planning Process (LTPP). The LTPP allows interested parties to examine the transmission system plans of each of the New York Transmission Owners individually. Under the LTPP, each New York Transmission Owner will post on its website the planning criteria and assumptions currently used in its LTPP. Customers, Market Participants and other interested parties may review and comment on the planning criteria and assumptions used by each Transmission Owner, as well as other data and models used by each Transmission Owner in its LTPP. The Transmission Owners plan for their Bulk Power Transmission Facilities using applicable criteria of the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC), the Northeast Power Coordinating Council (NPCC), and the New York State Reliability Council (NYSRC). Each LTPP will describe the needs addressed by the LTPP, as well as the assumptions, applicable planning criteria and methodology utilized. During each two-year CSPP cycle, the NYISO will hold one or more stakeholder meetings of the Electric System Planning Working Group and the Transmission Planning Advisory Subcommittee at which each Transmission Owner's current Local Transmission Plan will be discussed. The NYISO will post notices of those meetings and provide agendas and meeting materials.
