POST-TECHNICAL CONFERENCE COMMENTS OF THE ITM COALITION
The ITM Coalition respectfully submits these comments in response to the December 23, 2022 Notice Inviting Post-Technical Conference Comments (Notice)1 in the above-captioned dockets, in which the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC or Commission) seeks comment on the issues raised at the October 6, 2022 Transmission Planning and Cost Management Technical Conference as well as the specific questions raised in the Notice.
The ITM Coalition consists of a range of interested stakeholders including consumer and public interest groups, environmental advocates, climate think tanks, and generation developers that support the concept of designating independent transmission monitors (ITMs) to coordinate, monitor and audit transmission planning processes, cost allocation, and competitive solicitations. The ITM Coalition has the shared goal of ensuring well-coordinated and cost-effective transmission solutions to lower costs for electricity consumers, provide access to a wide portfolio of resources, and ensure a stable and reliable grid as the nation transitions to cleaner energy resources.
