SMUD Eyes Transmission Market

Fortnightly Magazine - April 1 1996

The Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD) will hold a series of public forums on a new plan to offer electric transmission service under its wholesale point-to-point tariff. SMUD wants to divide its transmission system into five "highways," each carrying a

separate price tag capped at SMUD's cost-of-service (em ranging from $0.43 to $2.93 per kilowatt-hour per month. SMUD goes a step further than the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's open-access Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, providing not only third-party transmission capacity on a firm and nonfirm (long- and short-term) basis, but also the option to negotiate service based on specific needs as well as the option to own new transmission facilities.
