Consider a resolution authorizing the Mayor to execute an Easement and Right-of-Way by and between the City of Lubbock and Oncor Electric Delivery Company, LLC ("Oncor"), to be utilized for electric power and communication lines and associated equipment over, under, along, to, from, and through land more particularly described in Exhibits A and B to the Easement and Right-of-Way, and including certain areas along the following transmission lines across the City's Hancock Land Application Site.
Lubbock Power & Light (LP&L) filed before the Public Utility Commission of Texas ("PUC") its Application of the City of Lubbock Through Lubbock Power and Light for Authority to Connect a Portion of its System with the Electric Reliability Council of Texas ("ERCOT"), Docket Number 47576 (the "Application"), on or about September 1, 2017. The portion of LP&L's load, subject to that Application, is more particularly defined therein as the "Affected Load."
The PUC approved LP&L's Application to integrate the Affected Load into ERCOT by its Order dated March 15, 2018, in PUC Docket No. 47576, styled Application for the City of Lubbock through Lubbock Power and Light for Authority to Connect a Portion of its System with the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (the "Order").
As a part of that Order, the PUC ordered LP&L and Sharyland Utilities ("Sharyland"), as end point owners of the subject transmission infrastructure ("Infrastructure") required to be constructed to integrate the Affected Load into ERCOT, to agree to the split of ownership of such infrastructure. This agreement was accomplished through the Participation Agreement (the "PA"), entered into by and between LP&L and Sharyland.
Subsequent to entering into the PA, Sharyland was acquired by merger and acquisition by Oncor Electric Delivery Company ("Oncor"). As part of the merger and acquisition, Oncor succeeded to all benefits and obligations of Sharyland under the PA.
Oncor had responsibility under the PA to construct 345 kV and 115 kV transmission lines, some of which will be transferred to LP&L ownership and operation at a later date. Portions of these facilities were constructed on land owned by the City of Lubbock, including the Hancock Land Application Site in Lynn County. This Easement and Right-of-Way being granted to Oncor is for the transmission and communication lines and associated equipment (the "Facilities") retained by Oncor, over, under, along, to, from, and through land more particularly described in Exhibits A and B, attached to the Easement and Right-of-Way across the Hancock Land Application Site.
The fiscal impact has previously been approved by the Electric Utility Board and the City Council.
