BPA released a draft decision on July 29 to join the Western Energy Imbalance Market. This proposed draft decision follows an extensive EIM assessment and public process over the last three years where BPA worked closely with customers and constituents to fully assess the impacts and make necessary policy decisions to enable the agency’s participation. In the Draft EIM Close-out Letter, Administrator John Hairston said he does not see any barriers or concerns preventing BPA from joining the market. However, he will not make a final decision until after reviewing all input from the public in this final phase of the decision process. BPA is accepting comments on its Draft EIM Close-out Letter until Aug. 23 and expects to release the Final EIM Close-out Letter on Sept. 28.
