Transmission Adequacy Consulting
· Wind and Solar ATC (max available capacity) anywhere in the US.
· Harmer and helper generators causing congestion are identified.
· Determinstic studies can be expanded as probabilistic studies.
· Nearby wind buses are quickly ID'd cutting wind study costs.
· Distance calculator quickly finds distances of all generators.
· Easy to read report listing ATCs in sorted ascending order.
· Low Fees: Solar $200/bus + ($200 setup for < 5 buses).
· Only $100/bus for zipflow* buses with ATC < 0.
· Quick turnaround on ATC study requests.
· * zipflow theory is on pages 123-128.
