Challenge to Transco ROE Adder

On June 12, 2019, in EL19-80, the Kansas Corporation Commission (“KCC”) requested elimination of the 100 basis point Transco Adder to the ROE of ITC Great Plains as the basis for FERC’s 2009 approval of a 100 basis point Transco Adder no longer holds true following Fortis Inc.’s (“Fortis”) and GIC (Ventures) Pte. Ltd.’s (“GIC”) 2016 acquisition of ITC Great Plains’ parent company, ITC Holdings, Inc. (“ITC Holdings”).  Consistent with FERC’s October 18, 2018 decision whereby FERC reduced the Transco Adder for another ITC transmission owner in MISO from 100 basis points to 25 basis points,  FERC should find that Fortis’ and GIC’s acquisition of ITC Holdings eliminated or reduced ITC Great Plains’ independence from market participants and either eliminate ITC Great Plains’ Transco Adder entirely, or reduce it from 100 basis points to no more than 25 basis points.
