Benefits and Costs of RTO Participation and Rate-Depancaking

The Brattle Group has analyzed the configuration and effectiveness of several proposed ISOs and RTOs along with expansions of existing RTOs. We have performed cost-benefit analyses for utilities interested in RTO participation. Brattle has also evaluated the impact of RTO seams elimination efforts, assessed various long-term transmission cost allocation designs, analyzed eliminating pancaked transmission costs across RTOs and non-RTO utilities, and quantified the potential customer impact of each design.
