System alternatives

ATC may consider alternatives to transmission solutions to problems on the transmission system if needed. Such alternatives could include, but are not limited to, central station generation, distributed generation, load management and conservation measures. We will use sound judgment in assessing whether non-transmission solutions are applicable on a case-by-case basis, keeping in mind that ATC is not a vertically integrated utility and does not own generation or serve as a load serving entity for retail load.
