Transmission Planning Improvement Task Force

Transmission Planning Improvement Task Force

The Transmission Planning Improvement Task Force (TPITF) is responsible for developing recommendations that will produce more progressive, forward-thinking, regional planning processes that are more responsive to the continued growth of SPP’s transmission system, markets, challenges and opportunities presented by changing federal and state energy and environmental regulations, and NERC compliance requirements. The TPITF recommendations should represent a consolidated, coordinated approach as to how the system is planned, managed, maintained, and how the existing processes could be improved, with a particular emphasis on any progress that could be made toward making additional transmission service available to SPP’s customers on the system without unduly compromising system reliability. The recommendations should continue to enable the maximum use of capital-intensive generating resources for the benefit of all end-use customers in the SPP footprint and should continue to develop and enhance policies, tools, and practices to optimize the use of the transmission system.
