Introduction
  • Integrated Transmission Solutions was formed out
    of a necessity to unlock constrained renewable
    generation projects.
  • Currently consulting on over 1200 MWs of
    renewable energy project development in the
    United States.
  • ITS draws on 21 years of electric utility, oil
    and gas industry experience from Technical
    Director Edward Hinders
  • ITS has committed substantial capital to project
    planning and development

3
Transmission Incentives
  • Transmission is the 1 Constraint of Delivering
    Utility Scale Renewables in North America
  • Iincentives to accelerate the development of
    transmission infrastructure
  • Stranded cost efficient wind and solar projects
  • FERC ruling allow higher ROE on new renewable
    transmission
  • 15 year MACRS allowances on new projects
  • State bonds
  • Federal stimulus bill

Its Not Rocket Surgery!!
PREMIUM RESOURCE
PREMIUM MARKET

Resource
6
Market
  • Existing state policies and/or laws in the WECC
    mandate approximately 87,960 GWH of renewable
    energy by 2017.
  • Of that, 52,829 GWH will be required by 2012
  • California's renewable requirement will increase
    to 33 or 93,000gwh by 2020.
  • Along with the required increases in California,
    renewable energy requirements in other WECC
    member states will exceed 130,000 GWH in 2020

7
Santa Fe Project
  • 750 Mile 500KV HVDC Transmission Project
  • Up to 3300MW Capacity
  • Deliver Wind and Other Renewables to Markets in
    Arizona, Nevada and Southern California
  • Collector and DC Converter Station Located near
    Clovis.
  • Midpoint Converter/Switching Station Being
    considered at Moenkopi.
  • Endpoint DC Converter Station near Marketplace

8
Stanford University Study
  • ........contrary to common knowledge, an average
    of 33 and a maximum of 47 of yearly averaged
    wind power from interconnected farms can be used
    as reliable, baseload electric power.
  • Equally significant, interconnecting multiple
    wind farms to a common point, and then connecting
    that point to a far-away city can allow the
    long-distance portion of transmission capacity to
    be reduced, for example, by 20 with only a 1.6
    loss of energy.
  • ........the benefits of interconnection continue
    to increase with more and more interconnected
    sites.
  • ARCHER and JACOBSON, Stanford University, 2007

Potential Resource Mix
  • Wind
  • Solar
  • Geothermal
  • Biomass
  • Natural Gas for Balancing and Voltage Support

23
Current Status
  • 18 months of development and progress
  • Completion of all preliminary feasibility
  • Numerous stakeholder meetings and
    presentations
  • Awaiting results of Quanta Servicesoff-take
    analysis
  • Provided Statement of Interest to WAPAs recent
    RFI
  • Continuing discussions with potential off-take
    customers
  • Preparation of FERC Application
  • Feet on the ground EIS permitting commences
    soon

24
Competitive Merits
  • Shortest distance between significant renewable
    resources and demand markets in the Southwest.
  • Relatively short distance can increase the speed
    to in service date and also enhance the economics
    of the asset.
  • Large resource area accesses some of the best
    annual wind class in the CONUS
  • Summertime wind profile in the resource still
    achieves Class 4 profile, also has propensity to
    match the peak time of demand in the western
    markets
  • Relatively low environmental impact
  • Low unit costs on a comparative basis
  • Multiple partners and stakeholders results in
    multi-state economic benefit
  • Joint solar/wind study planned to explore further
    opportunity to firm power

Manhattan Institute Report The Million-Volt
Answer To Oil
A backbone grid built with state-of-the-art
high-voltage technology and spanning the
continent could readily move 25 percent of
Americas power over very long distances, at a
cost well under 0.5 cents per kilowatt-hour
moved.
If a backbone grid allowed the average plant to
be fully used an average of fifteen hours a day
rather than the current twelve, the average
capital-related cost of electricity would drop 20
percent. Peter W. Huber, Senior Fellow,
Manhattan Institute
