Start Preamble January 18, 2005.

Take notice that on January 14, 2005, Williams Power Company, Inc. (Williams) filed a complaint under section 206 of the Federal Power Act 16 U.S.C. 824e and section 206 of the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedures 18 CFR 385.206, against the California Independent System Operator Corporation (CAISO). Williams charges that the CAISO has improperly and unlawfully applied an unapproved tolerance band procedure to deprive minimum load cost compensation (MLCC) to generating units operating under the must-offer obligation when returning from a CAISO dispatch instruction. Williams requests a determination that the CAISO's unilateral application of this procedure has not been authorized by the Commission and is therefore unlawful. Williams requests that the Commission direct the CAISO to reverse the application of this procedure in each and every instance that it applied the procedure, and that the Commission direct the CAISO to immediately pay MLCC, plus interest, in which the CAISO imparoperly denied MLCC by virtue of the application in this procedure.

Williams states that this complaint has been served on the CAISO.

Any person desiring to intervene or to protest this filing must file in accordance with Rules 211 and 214 of the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure (18 CFR 385.211 and 385.214).

The Respondent's answer and all interventions, or protests must be filed on or before the comment date.
