Global Transmission Report | January 2016 35 Spotlight Several companies announced their investment plans to expand and strengthen their power transmission networks. Some of the key upcoming investments announcement made in the country in 2015 include a 10-year investment plan of ATC worth between USD3.7 billion and USD4.5 billion for network expansion, Ridgewood Private Equity Partners’ (RPEP) USD100 million investment in the Neptune Regional Transmission System, and ITC Holdings Corporation’s (ITC) plan to invest USD4.5 billion till 2018 to upgrade and expand its power transmission network in the US Midwest. The key acquisition deals concluded in the United States in 2015 include the Exelon Corporation and Pepco Holdings deal, which received approval from the Delaware PSC in June 2015. South Central MCN LLC, a subsidiary of GridLiance Holdco, and Tri-County Electric Cooperative (TCEC) entered into a definitive agreement to acquire the electric transmission assets of the latter. AIA Energy North America LLC completed the acquisition of the Cross Sound Cable transmission system. Energy Future Holdings (EFH) is still in the process of selling its transmission arm Oncor Electric to Hunt Consolidated, Inc. The projects completed in the United States in 2015 include the Battle Axe–Roadrunner 115 kV transmission line project, the Ochiltree–Cole 115 kV project, the Big Eddy– Knight transmission line project, the Central Ferry–Lower Monumental transmission line project, the Central–Tortolita transmission project, the Hampton–La Crosse transmission project, the Phoenix– Yuma transmission line project, the Susquehanna–Roseland transmission project, the Western Milwaukee County Electric Reliability project, the Brookings County–Hampton transmission line project, and the Fargo– St. Cloud–Monticello transmission line project. In September 2015, the rate proposals, returns on investment, and equity structures of Kanstar Transmission, LLC, Midwest Power Transmission Arkansas, LLC, and ATX Southwest, a wholly owned subsidiary of Ameren Transmission Company, were also accepted by FERC. Under this filing, the companies separately submitted their transmission formula rate templates and formula rate protocols to establish a mechanism for recovering their costs associated with the transmission projects that they intend to own and develop as part of the Order 1000 mandates of FERC. Various notable developments also took place in Canada in 2015. In September, the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) published new editions of two standards for power distribution and transmission networks. These are part of Part III of the Canadian Electrical Code (CEC), which specifies minimum requirements for electricity supply and telecommunication systems in support of public safety and reliability of service.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
