A diverse group of electric utilities across the country have launched the Coalition for Fair Transmission Policy (CFTP). More than 28 percent of U.S. electric customers, representing 26 states, are served by utilities and companies which are either formal CFTP members or are on record supporting the group's goals. The group will support legislative and regulatory policies within comprehensive energy legislation that will lead to the most efficient development of the nation’s electric transmission systems and clean generation resources.
The Coalition will seek to ensure that any effort to improve transmission planning builds on existing successful, coordinated, open, and transparent regional processes, and is inclusive of all stakeholders. The CFTP believes that voluntary interconnection-wide coordination should be a complement to, and not a substitute for, local and regional processes.
The Coalition also will work to ensure that the costs of new transmission investments are borne by those who create the need for the investments. More specifically, the Coalition opposes the allocation of transmission expansion costs to electric consumers unless there are measurable economic or reliability benefits for those consumers.
