Should you wish to have the ability to request and schedule firm or non-firm Transmission Services from Avista, please execute and return a Service Agreement for Short-Term Firm and Non-Firm PTP Transmission Services.
This is an "umbrella" agreement, which enables you to reserve and schedule short-term firm and non-firm Transmission Services under Avista’s Open Access Transmission Tariff (OATT). Avista will create the Short Term Firm and Non-Firm Point-To-Point Transmission Service Agreement with the eligible customers after the eligible customer completes the Short-Term Firm and Non-Firm Service Request Information Form:
(look under the Provider Information folder under Registration Procedures)
Avista must receive an executed copy of this Service Agreement prior to enabling your company to reserve Transmission Services from Avista.
Once you have completed the above steps, please contact
Tracy Townley or Eva Hunt at (509) 495-4819
and request to be added to Avista's List of Users. Avista will then perform the necessary steps to authorize you to submit transmission requests via the OASIS.
A Short-Term Firm and Non-Firm PTP Transmission Services Agreement must also be in place for a customer to request Long-Term Firm Transmission Service or Network Integration Transmission Service through Avista's OASIS. The request must also be followed up with a written application and appropriate deposit before the application will be accepted.
