All interested persons are invited to file post-technical conference comments on PJM’s filings and the topics discussed during the technical conference, including those indicated below. Regarding PJM’s filing and proposed changes, specifically: • Whether PJM’s conservative modeling of outages that limited the allocation of Stage 1B ARRs have resulted in an inequitable cost shift, and please explain why. • PJM proposes to eliminate portfolio netting. Comment on the current practice of netting positively valued FTRs against negatively valued FTRs within an FTR holder’s portfolio. Do the current tariff provisions on netting work to protect the markets against the potential exercise of manipulation, and if so, how? If netting is eliminated and causes the potential for the exercise of manipulation, what measures would need to be put into place to prevent potential market manipulation? Would allocating surplus funds to load rather than to FTR holders, or carrying surplus funds forward to fund any future revenue inadequacy be ways of addressing potential manipulation? • The appropriateness of using the 1.5 percent adder for all zones, regardless of the actual zonal load growth rate and negative load growth projections for some areas; and the appropriateness of conducting the 10year study with different growth rates as a sensitivity study, as is done for other RTEP studies. Is the cost of building transmission as a result of the 1.5 percent adder justified by the benefit of being able to accommodate the current allocations in Stage 1A? Regarding PJM’s proposed solutions in the context of its current tariff, please discuss if there are other solutions to consider. Specifically, please comment on: • If infeasible Stage 1A ARRs should continue to be awarded and treated as they are today. E:\FR\FM\01MRN1.SGM 01MRN1
