West of McNary Generation Integration Kyle Kohne, BPA

Slide 15

Major Project Elements Part One: Construct another McNary – John Day 500-kV transmission line. Section Two: Construct another 500-kV substation ("Station Z") close Goldendale, WA, and a 500-kV line from Station Z to BPA\'s Big Eddy substation close to The Dalles, OR. Expected rating (TTC) increment: Depending on where new era is coordinated. West of McNary: 2850MW to 4500MW West of Slatt: 4100MW to 5500MW West of John Day: 2440MW to 3450MW Anticipated Operating Date: Part One: 2011 Part Two: 2013 Project Website: http://www.columbiagrid.org/mcnary-overview.cfm Project Overview

Slide 16

Objectives The target of this venture is to empower BPA to serve indicate point transmission asks for over different congested east-west transmission ways along the Washington – Oregon outskirt. It would likewise empower BPA to incorporate extra twist era in Eastern Washington and Eastern Oregon. Increment framework unwavering quality to serve Portland zone stack.

Slide 17

Background West of McNary Generation Integration Project Regional Planning Compliance Report submitted to WECC Planning Coordination Council on December 31, 2007. Control Flow and voltage strength considers have been finished. Transient soundness studies are in advance.
