Transmission Service

Print

IID sells available transmission capacity (ATC) to other entities that need our lines to transport energy through our service area to coastal cities. Our ATC is posted on www.westtrans.net, a web-based transmission market, whose development was led by IID, and has become a valuable tool for utilities to locate and secure ATC on the Western Grid.

IID’s point-to-point transmission service is the use of transmission facilities for the transmission of capacity and energy between a point of receipt and a point of delivery. In IID’s Open Access Transmission Tariff, firm and non-firm point-to-point transmission services are offered for terms of various durations. Point-to-point transmission service can be used for transmission of capacity and/or energy into, out of, through or within the IID service territory.
