The Electricity Transmission Competition Coalition (“ETCC”) appreciates the opportunity to submit these Comments in response to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s (“Commission” or “FERC”) request for Comments on this Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (“ANOPR”) regarding regional transmission planning, regional cost allocation, and generation interconnection processes. The ETCC, a broad-based and diverse coalition of large intensive energy users, non-incumbent transmission developers, state consumer advocates, public power representatives, and others, supports competition in transmission planning. Transmission investment should be driven by the needs of consumers and by competitive market outcomes. Competition in transmission planning and construction reduces costs to consumers, results in project construction to meet reliability requirements and market-driven transmission needs, and will help achieve the same public policy objectives that the Commission intends to achieve through the ANOPR.
