Western is in the business of moving power, as well as marketing it. Utilities transmitting non-Federal power may buy the transmission capacity remaining on Western's system after we reserve enough capacity to deliver Federal hydropower to our long-standing, firm power contracts. Available transmission capacity is sold on our Open Access, Same-Time Information System.
Western offers three types of transmission services. Point-to-point service is transmission between points of receipt and delivery. Network integration transmission service delivers capacity and energy over Western's system from a network customer's designated resources to its designated load. Ancillary services support the transmission of capacity and energy from resources to loads while maintaining the reliable operation of the system.
