FERC accepts a first revise LGIA (to include details regarding the Direct Assignment Facilities charge omitted from the original LGIA and to update the Capacity Network Resource Capability (“CNRC”) of the 28.5 MW Hoosac wind farm), eff. Mar 19, 2021
ISO-NE and NEPOOL file with the FERC the Waiver Agreement that temporarily waives the provisions of the Participants Agreement (related to the size of the ISO Board and the term length of one new Board member) that was required to seat the four-person slate of candidates for election to the ISO Board of Directors.
FERC denies in part, but grants in part, Green Development’s Complaint against New England Power (National Grid). The FERC partially denied the complaint, finding that Green Development did not meet its burden of proof that the assignment of Direct Assignment Facility (DAF) charges by National Grid to Narragansett violated the first part of the ISO-NE Tariff definition of Direct Assignment Facilities (requiring that the facilities be constructed for the sole use/benefit of a particular Transmission Customer requesting service under the ISO-NE Tariff). However, the FERC found that Green Development demonstrated a failure by National Grid to comply with the requirement that the facilities be “specified in a separate agreement among ISO-NE, the Interconnection Customer and the Transmission Customer, as applicable, and the Transmission Owner whose transmission system is to be modified.” As a result, National Grid may not assess DAF charges to Narragansett in association with the upgrades necessary for the Projects unless and until it complies with this part of the definition.
