Take notice that the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission will host a technical conference on Thursday and Friday, December 14-15, 2006 to address issues related to the California Independent System Operator Corporation's (CAISO) electric tariff, which reflects the Market Redesign and Technology Upgrade (MRTU). The conference will be held at the Biltmore Hotel at 2400 East Missouri in Phoenix, Arizona. The conference is scheduled for Thursday, December 14 from 1 to 5 p.m. and Friday, December 15, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Mountain Standard Time. Commissioners will attend, and the conference is open to the public.

The purpose of the technical conference is to assist the CAISO and parties outside the CAISO Control Area to identify alleged seams issues that require resolution, in accordance with the directive of the Commission's September 21, 2006 order conditionally accepting the CAISO's proposed MRTU electric tariff.[1]

The technical conference will be a forum for participants to identify specific alleged seams issues they will face upon MRTU implementation and to offer solutions to remedy those seams. Participants should be prepared to discuss technical and operational issues. Participants are encouraged to file comments with the Commission on or before November 15, 2006 that identify specific alleged operational seams issues (particularly quantitative examples) and possible solutions for discussion at the conference. These comments should be filed in Docket No. ER06-615-002.
