February 27, 2020)
following are the currently proposed draft
versions (posted for
the 10 business day comment period) of the
Business Practices (BPs) that are common and identical
across all of WAPA's Regional Offices, which includes
(DSW, RMR, SNR, and UGP - See Note 1 for UGP). The
BPs apply to the NERC identified TSPs: CRCM, LAPT, WALC,
Additional draft BPs specific only to an individual
Region/TSP are also posted on that TSP's OASIS under the
"Business Practices" folder.
submit any comments or questions on the proposed draft BP(s) by
the due date shown above to your specific WAPA Regional
Note 1. The UGP Region joined
the Southwest Power Pool, Inc. (SPP) as a transmission owner
and transferred functional control of all of its eligible
transmission facilities to SPP on October 1, 2015.
Transmission service and certain other services over those UGP
Regional transmission facilities are available solely under
the SPP Open Access Transmission Tariff (SPP Tariff).
Ancillary services offered by the UGP Region as a Balancing
Authority operator are also solely available under the SPP
Tariff. Therefore, certain WAPA BPs may not be currently
applicable, or have limited applicability, in the UGP Region.
