FERC confirms MISO's transmission-sharing agreement with SPP

Carmel, Ind., July 5, 2011 — The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission issued a declaratory judgment confirming that the SPP/MISO joint operating agreement allows the parties to share available transmission capacity.

MISO's April petition sought clarification of conflicting interpretations between MISO and SPP regarding Section 5.2 of the agreement. FERC agreed with MISO's interpretation that Section 5.2 provides for sharing transmission capacity on a common path.

FERC's order also recognizes the practical need for MISO and SPP to continue to work together on possible revisions to the JOA to improve the economic efficiency of the operations of the combined region. MISO agrees that continued improvement of the JOA is important and necessary because market efficiencies ultimately lead to increased customer benefits.

MISO also remains committed to working with state regulatory commissions and other interested stakeholders to address any issues that may arise during Entergy's planned integration into MISO market operations.
