Breaking New Ground in Electric Transmission Rates

Situation

Led the efforts of Mid-Kansas Electric Company LLC to implement the nation’s first nonprofit utility transmission rate with a 50 basis points incentive adder for membership in a regional transmission organization (RTO). The formula-based rate was approved by the Kansas Corporation Commission after the team negotiated an uncontested settlement just days before the scheduled hearing.

Result

The ability to adjust the rate annually without time-consuming rate cases is critical, given the utility’s plan to almost triple transmission facilities by 2015.
