On February 26, FERC issued an order extending through July 10, 2013, the deadline for all public utility transmission providers to submit their Order No. 1000 compliance filings with respect to interregional transmission coordination procedures as well as an interregional cost allocation method or methods. FERC’s order was prompted By requests for an extension of time from Southwest Power Pool, Inc., Midwest Independent Transmission System Operator, Inc., and a number of individual public utilities. FERC stated that it would grant a 90-day extension of the Order No. 1000 interregional compliance filing deadline to enable public utility transmission providers in each transmission planning region to work with their stakeholders and develop interregional compliance filings with broad-based support.
