Carmel, IN 46032
Officially called “The Agreement of Transmission Facilities Owners to Organize the Midwest Independent Transmission System Operator, Inc., A Delaware Non-Stock Corporation ("MISO Agreement").”
This multi-party contract between the MISO, International Transmission Company (“ITC”) and each of the MISO Transmission Owners amends the Appendix I Agreement between ITC and the MISO.
By signing Appendix G of the MISO Agreement, Transmission Owning Members will authorize MISO to act as the agent in the performance of Tariff administrative duties related to "Non-transferred Transmission Facilities."
This agreement, between the MISO and the MISO Local Balancing Authorities, resulted from negotiations regarding the establishment and implementation of the MISO Ancillary Services Markets.
