Notice of Proposed Final Resource Adequacy Plan for Transactions in the California Independent System Operator Corporation's Balancing Authority Area
The Western Area Power Administration (Western) is conducting a public process to propose a Final Resource Adequacy (RA) Plan for transactions in the California Independent System Operator Corporation's (CAISO) Balancing Authority Area. Pending the development of this Final RA Plan, Western has established interim RA Plans to facilitate its transactions in the CAISO Balancing Authority Area. Western is developing this proposed Final RA Plan as a Local Regulatory Authority (LRA). The Final RA Plan implemented by Western will be submitted to the CAISO and will be utilized by Western when Western is acting as a Load Serving Entity (LSE) in the CAISO Balancing Authority Area. Western's Current RA Plan became effective on September 30, 2006, and will remain in effect until superseded by the Final RA Plan developed in this process.
