This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.
Take notice that on June 20, 2002, Ameren Services Company (Ameren), acting as agent for its electric utility affiliates Union Electric Company d/b/a AmerenUE and Central Illinois Public Service Company d/b/a/ AmerenCIPS, FirstEnergy Corp. (FirstEnergy), on behalf of its subsidiary American Transmission Systems, Inc., Northern Indiana Public Service Company (NIPSCO), and the Midwest Independent System Operator, Inc. (MISO) tendered for filing a compliance filing in the above-referenced dockets. National Grid USA (National Grid) joined the filing to support it in full.
The compliance filing contains a letter of intent and a term sheet between Ameren, FirstEnergy, NIPSCO, and National Grid setting forth the terms to govern the negotiation of agreements providing for the formation of an independent transmission company (ITC), to be called GridAmerica LLC, under the provisions of Appendix I MISO's Open Access Transmission Tariff. GridAmerica will be formed as an LLC with National Grid as the managing member. Ameren, FirstEnergy, and NIPSCO will turn over functional control of their transmission facilities to GridAmerica pursuant to Operation Agreements.
The compliance filing also contains a letter of intent and a term sheet between Ameren, FirstEnergy, NIPSCO, National Grid, and MISO setting forth the terms to govern negotiation of the Appendix I service agreement pursuant to which GridAmerica LLC will join the MISO. The Appendix I service agreement will delineate those functions to be performed by GridAmerica and those to be performed by MISO. This filing was made to comply in full with the terms of the Commission's April 25, 2002 order in this proceeding and with Order No. 2000.
