Benefits to ERCOT Ratepayers from the Kelson Transmission Project

Categorized Under: Energy



Prepared for Kelson Transmission Company, LLC, by ICF International, June 2008. ICF conducted an economic analysis of the Canal to Deweyville transmission project, which will serve greater Houston, Texas. The proposed transmission line will provide access to efficient generation capacity in eastern Texas. The project will improve the capacity reserve margin of the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) and provide up to $35 billion of total cost savings to rate payers over a 30-year period. In addition, it will reduce emissions through better utilization of clean and efficient power plants. ICF’s report was filed with the Public Utility Commission of Texas in June 2008. If approved, Kelson Transmission anticipates completion of the $300-million project by spring 2011.
