Transmission providers established a WestConnect subregional planning process by signing the WestConnect Project Agreement for Subregional Transmission Planning (STP Agreement).
The STP Agreement established a Planning Management Committee (PMC) made up of one representative of each of the signatory parties. The PMC is tasked with implementation of a subregional planning process that complies with the WestConnect Planning Objectives and Procedures for Regional Planning approved by the WestConnect Steering Committee on August 24, 2006.
The subregional transmission planning is being performed by Southwest Transmission Planning Group (SWAT), the Colorado Coordinated Planning Group (CCPG) and any other subregional transmission planning (STP) groups that forms and makes up the WestConnect planning area. Annually a ten year integrated regional transmission plan is derived from their efforts that coordinate all transmission plans across the WestConnect planning area.
