  • Consideration of public policy requirements in transmission planning processes
  • Removal of obstacles to nonincumbent transmission provider participation in transmission planning processes
  • Increased interregional coordination in transmission planning through interregional planning agreements
  • Cost allocation of new transmission projects on an intra- and interregional basis and potential jurisdiction issues
