FLAWED US ENERGY/ELECTRICITY POLICY Enhanced Transmission System Needed:  FLAWED US ENERGY/ELECTRICITY POLICY Enhanced Transmission System Needed De facto national electricity/energy policy of last 15 years fundamentally flawed “Natural gas generation at load” Fundamentally flawed in two respects Gas will not be cheap ($2 – 3/mmbtu) and plentiful Transmission far more valuable than generation at load All incremental electricity load in most of US served by gas Electric rate increases/fuel adjustment increases coming Home heating and industrial process costs increase 30 – 50% FLAWED US ENERGY/ELECTRICITY POLICY Natural Gas Will Not Be Cheap and Plentiful :  FLAWED US ENERGY/ELECTRICITY POLICY Natural Gas Will Not Be Cheap and Plentiful US natural gas reserves cannot keep up with demand – decline rates Natural gas and therefore electricity prices have and will increase Recession and extreme mild weather only reason US did not have high gas prices 3 years in a row LNG is 5 – 7 years away and creates OPEC like dependence Interim, competition between home heating, industrial process and electric power generation Industry loses hence exit of petrochemical, fertilizer, aluminum, pulp & paper, etc Gas is most efficiently used to heat homes and in industrial process (80 – 95%) versus producing electricity (50 – 60%) More disposable consumer spending will go to heating and electricity bills versus consumer products, medical or other areas COAL IS LESS VOLATILE THAN OTHER FUELS Coal’s Consistent Price Plateau:  COAL IS LESS VOLATILE THAN OTHER FUELS Coal’s Consistent Price Plateau Delivered cost of fossil fuel at steam electric utility plants.

FLAWED US ENERGY/ELECTRICITY POLICY Transmission More Valuable Than Generation at Load :  FLAWED US ENERGY/ELECTRICITY POLICY Transmission More Valuable Than Generation at Load Enables lowest cost generation to serve load, be it hydro, nuclear, wind or coal and reduces demand on high cost fuels like gas Arbitrages hydro conditions and fuel price volatility Mitigates potential market power abuse (Western Crisis) Insurance against catastrophic events (August Blackout) Transmission is a market enabler Transmission value dramatically increases when high priced gas is displaced by low variable cost generation Western Generation Requires Multi-State Transmission :  Western Generation Requires Multi-State Transmission Wind in the Front Range and certain Coastal areas Coal in the Rocky Mountain Region Hydro in Pacific Northwest and Canada? Load growth in Southwest and Salt Lake Requirements to Develop New/Enhance Transmission :  Requirements to Develop New/Enhance Transmission Estimate economic value of enhanced transmission Over range of hydro availability and fuel price scenarios Over a few generation addition scenarios – gas, wind and coal Identify interregional beneficiaries of new transmission Provides state and federal regulators, decision and policy makers with much needed support for approval of projects State, regional and federal power agency approval of cost sharing and revenue recovery method for enhanced transmission Create mechanism to spread cost of new transmission according to beneficiary analysis Siting process for new or enhanced transmission done concurrently and coordinated in affected states with similar involvement from Dept. of Interior agencies, Dept. of Agriculture agencies and Tribal Nations WESTERN GOVERNOR’S STUDY AUGUST 2001 2010 Western Energy Market – Two Visions:  2000 - 2010 electric energy load growth another 20% 2000 - 2010 new transmission miles less than 2% Total Generation Capacity 208,000 MW Gas Only Balanced Fuel Type % of Total % of Total Hydroelectric 31 31 Natural Gas 40 29 Coal 18 26 Nuclear & Other 8 9 Geothermal 1 2 Wind 2 3 WESTERN GOVERNOR’S STUDY AUGUST 2001 2010 Western Energy Market – Two Visions WESTERN GOVERNOR’S STUDY AUGUST 2001 Costs & Savings of Two Alternatives:  Cost of new transmission for Gas Only case $2 B Cost of new transmission for Balanced case $8 B – could be optimized Average market price savings of Balanced versus Gas Only case $7/MWh in 2010. Annual energy consumption in the West in 2010 - 960,000,000 MWh Market savings from Balanced versus Gas case in 2010 - $6.7 B annually Under high gas price scenario, the balanced case could pay for all the new transmission in less than a year. WESTERN GOVERNOR’S STUDY AUGUST 2001 Costs & Savings of Two Alternatives SSG-WI Process Logical Next Step, But…..:  Without Pacificorp’s dedication of significant staff, there is insufficient resources dedicated to execute studies in timely fashion Necessary follow-on studies have no resources Lack of authority and unclear responsibilities No formal or legal entity to develop cost sharing arrangements for projects which show good consumer value Unclear if states will support analysis conducted by SSG-WI SSG-WI has no role in the siting process Who has lead authority to get new or enhance transmission built? SSG-WI Process Logical Next Step, But….. ROCKY MOUNTAIN TRANSMISSION GROUP Can Be West’s First Effective Regional Electricity Entity:  “Natural gas generation at load”, a flawed energy policy Will not lead to affordable electricity and energy New baseload generation needed in the West Wind and coal will come from distance resources Regional electricity entities, like the Rocky Mountain Planning Group, needed to facilitate states access to low sources of electricity under variety of scenarios Electricity and energy consumers of the West (industry and residential consumer) very dependent on the West implementing a sustainable energy policy for generation and transmission ROCKY MOUNTAIN TRANSMISSION GROUP Can Be West’s First Effective Regional Electricity Entity
