opportunities, challenges, and barriers to Oregon entities participating in a Regional Transmission Organization (RTO).
The Oregon Department of Energy published the Regional Transmission Organization (RTO) Study
in December 2021.
The report includes a literature review of recent relevant studies and outlines the helpful stakeholder expertise and feedback we heard throughout report development.
Pursuant to SB 589, the Oregon Department of Energy appointed a diverse group of stakeholders
to the Oregon RTO Advisory Committee to provide feedback and perspectives that were foundational to the implementation of the bill.
While the primary purpose of this bill was the solicitation of feedback from this committee, ODOE also welcomed public comments. Comments ODOE received are available online
. Additional comments were submitted directly to ODOE via PDF:
