Regulatory and Compliance

For the protection and benefit of all New Yorkers

Underlying NYPA’s goals to construct transmission lines and develop clean and affordable energy alternatives that meet New York State’s strategic priorities under the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act, NYPA is subject to numerous transmission and reliability mandates set forth by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and the federally-approved electricity tariff of the New York Independent System Operator, Inc.  The links below describe many of the pertinent regulatory obligations of NYPA

  • The Design Criteria for Developer Connection to the New York Power Authority Transmission System (DCDC) is a guide for Developers interconnecting to the New York Power Authority (NYPA) transmission system.
  • 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.

    According to the FERC Order 717, the New York Power Authority must post its implementation procedures on the internet to demonstrate its compliance with the Standards of Conduct. View: NYPA’s Procedure for Implementation of FERC Standards of Conduct
