Northern Area Reliability Assessment

ATC has initiated a Northern Area Reliability Assessment effort to engage stakeholders and identify potential reinforcements due to generation uncertainties in the northern portion of the ATC system.
While not yet specifically identified in the project list, the capital forecast includes consideration of preliminary alternatives that could include:

  • Plains-National project
  • Lakota-Winona conversion from 69-kV to 138-kV
  • Morgan-Crivitz project
  • Uprates or rebuilds in the Green Bay area
  • Rhinelander area upgrades

ATC is collaborating with MISO to complete this assessment in late 2014. Potential generation solutions also will be considered.
