Technical Information for NYPA Transmission Operations

The New York Power Authority provides transmission service in various parts of New York State over more than 1,400 circuit-miles of transmission facilities, which account for one-third of the state’s high-voltage lines. We operate and maintain our power lines with a strong commitment to safety and the environment and work closely with the New York Independent System Operator (NYISO), other transmission owners and the New York State Public Service Commission to help ensure a high level of power-system reliability.

Customers can obtain service on the New York transmission system through the NYISO's OASIS (Open Access Same-Time Information System) node. All transmission service in the state is subject to the NYISO Open Access Transmission Tariff (OATT). Details of the tariff can be found on the NYISO web site.

On an annual basis, NYPA recovers the costs of its transmission system (the Annual Transmission Revenue Requirement (ATRR)) through monthly billings made by the NYISO. The ATRR is calculated in accordance with the NYPA Formula Rate set forth in NYISO OATT Section 14.2.3.

By July 1st of each year, NYPA will calculate and publish the Annual Update of the ATRR and subsequently hold an Open Meeting and conference call to provide an opportunity for interested parties to obtain information about the Annual Update. 

Next Open Meeting will be held: July 24th, 2017 at 10:00 a.m.

New York Power Authority (NYPA) does not have a service territory or a statutory obligation to serve load. Thus, NYPA is not required to build new transmission projects to meet the needs of load.  

NYPA has no distribution or low voltage facilities and therefore NYPA has no local planning requirements.  

NYPA only undertakes transmission projects as authorized by its governing statute (New York Public Authorities Law §§ 1000 et. Seq.) at the behest of and in coordination with other Transmission Owners  to meet New York State electric reliability and economic needs.  

When a potential NYPA transmission project is identified, the facilities are planned according to standards and criteria set forth by the New York Independent System Operator, the New York State Reliability Council, the Northeast Power Coordinating Council and the North American Electric Reliability Corporation. 

The Power Authority belongs to the Northeast Power Coordinating Council, formed to promote the reliability and efficiency of interconnected power systems throughout the northeastern United States and central and eastern Canada. Members of this regional reliability council include transmission providers, transmission customers, power pools and independent system operators in Northeastern North America.
