The group continued to discuss the issues related to the exemption from transmission service charges and unreserved use penalties for the first 4 hours of an unplanned event, which was the purpose of RR 308. SPP staff voiced

  • concerns about sufficient justifications that could be used in a filing to revise the Tariff for unreserved use and transmission service charge exemptions. The group proposed that SPP staff should ask for help with justifications from stakeholders.
