About Us

The Southeastern Regional Transmission Planning (SERTP) process provides an open and transparent transmission planning forum for transmission providers to engage with stakeholders regarding transmission plans in the region. The SERTP was originally developed to provide such an open and transparent regional transmission planning process and to otherwise comply with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's (FERC) Order 890 which was issued on February 16, 2007 to reform the decade-old Open Access Transmission Tariff (OATT) regulatory framework adopted in Order 888.

The SERTP has expanded several times, both in the scope and in the size of the region, since its initial voluntary formation and now includes the following Sponsors: Southern Company (SCS), Dalton Utilities, Georgia Transmission Corporation (GTC), the Municipal Electric Authority of Georgia (MEAG), PowerSouth, Louisville Gas & Electric Company and Kentucky Utilities Company (LG&E/KU), the Ohio Valley Electric Corporation (OVEC), including its wholly owned subsidiary Indiana-Kentucky Electric Corporation, Associated Electric Cooperative Inc. (AECI), the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA), and Duke Energy (Duke Energy Carolinas, LLC and Duke Energy Progress, LLC). As a result of this expanded size and scope, the SERTP region has become one of the largest regional transmission planning processes in the United States.

On July 11, 2011, FERC issued Order 1000, which adopted transmission planning and cost allocation requirements. The expanded SERTP, implementing the additional Order No. 1000 directives, is effective on June 1, 2014.
