MISO’s Market Participants and transmission customers may request long-term firm transmission service (one year or longer) on MISO’s OASIS. The Transmission Service Planning Group reviews all long term firm transmission service requests and notifies customers about their preliminary disposition.

Reports and Studies
Studies help MISO determine whether new long-term firm transmission services requests will cause new constraints or aggravate existing constraints on the MISO’s transmission system or non-MISO transmission systems. Requests that undergo System Impact Studies or Facilities studies have corresponding reports posted on MISO’s OASIS.
System Impact Studies (SIS)
System Impact Study reports provide detailed analysis of the impact of the requested service on MISO and non-MISO transmission systems as well as potential upgrade options and estimates of their associated costs.
Customers who want to pursue a transmission service request after seeing the results of the System Impact Study may require a Facility Study. During this stage, customers get more accurate cost estimates and schedules for finishing the transmission upgrades.
