Transmission Working Group

Transmission Working Group

The Transmission Working Group (TWG) develops and oversees regional and interregional transmission planning processes, including generator interconnection and long-term transmission service study processes. The TWG reviews proposed transmission interconnections and coordinates transmission planning activities to develop SPP’s Integrated Transmission Plan and Transmission Expansion Plan.

The TWG is comprised of representatives from transmission-owning members with up to an equal number of transmission-using members from the SPP membership. The TWG scope in the governing documents folder provides more information about this group and its work.
