ORDER EXCUSING ITC MIDWEST, L.L.C. FROM ATTENDANCE

 

Issue Date:  October 22, 2012                              Effective Date:  October 22, 2012

On October 12, 2012, ITC Midwest, L.L.C. (“ITC”) requested to be excused from attendance at the workshop in File Number EW-2013-0101, scheduled for November 14, 2012, and from the On-the-Record Proceeding in EW-2012-0011, scheduled for November 26, 2012.  ITC explains that is has very limited transmission assets in Missouri (about 9.5 miles long) located in the northeastern comer of the state.  It further states that it does not generate electricity and does not purchase fuel or engage in related hedging practices.  Because of its limited presence in the state it seeks to be excused from participating in these proceedings.  The Commission finds ITC’s requests to be reasonable and will grant them. 

 

THE COMMISSION ORDERS THAT:

1.     ITC Midwest, L.L.C. is excused from attendance at the workshop in File Number EW-2013-0101, scheduled for November 14, 2012, and from the On-the-Record Proceeding in EW-2012-0011, scheduled for November 26, 2012.

 

2.     This order shall become effective immediately upon issuance.
