Take notice that on November 9, 2000, the City of Vernon, California (Vernon) tendered for filing a Complaint Requesting Fast Track processing against the California Independent System Operator Corporation (ISO). The Vernon Complaint asserts that the ISO has unreasonably delayed approval of Vernon's application to the ISO to become a Participating Transmission Owner (PTO) in the ISO transmission system, and that the ISO has thereby violated its FERC Electric Tariff and the Federal Power Act. Vernon requests that the Commission order the ISO to promptly take action to approve and implement Vernon PTO status as of January 1, 2001, or, in the alternative, for the Commission itself to take actions necessary to implement Vernon PTO status effective as of January 1, 2001.
