Join SPP & MISO regulators,
Join SPP & MISO regulators, utilities and developers as they address the ongoing challenges and new opportunities facing the regions
In SPP and MISO there are big changes afoot. Both SPP and MISO are retiring coal plants which opens the door for additional renewable projects but brings concerns of reliability to the forefront. In addition, the upcoming revisions to the SPP and MISO Joint Operating Agreement raise the prospects of improved interregional planning and market-to-market transfers at the seam for lower energy costs.
However, as illustrated by the uncertain fate of the SPP’s expansion plans with the Mountain West Transmission Group, the situation remains fluid, and only those with the best and latest information on new developments will be able to take full advantage of the new realities in both of these organized markets. For example, questions remain about the long project interconnection queue backlog in both regions and exactly how the interregional planners will move forward.
As a result, Infocast’s groundbreaking SPP & MISO Markets Summit will be the very first meeting covering both markets and will deliver a full range of insights from key regulators and leading utilities, municipalities, and cooperatives. They will provide the very latest information on solutions for a revamped Joint Operating Agreement, market expansion, resource adequacy, reliability and resiliency, and T&D investment plans. As SPP and MISO jointly experience their biggest transformation in over a decade, the time is now for IPPs, renewable developers, T&D developers, and smart grid solutions providers to grow with the markets.
Don’t miss the Executive Briefing, SPP & MISO Markets Conditions and Projections, to get the latest market update including: Generation mix, what’s in the queue, load projections, power pricing forecasts, and more!

We are excited to announce
We are excited to announce our July Happy Hour speaker: Paul Watson, Director of Dividend Finance. Mr. Watson will guide us through the ins and outs of solar financing and answer your questions.
Although solar panel costs have come down dramatically, the upfront costs of the technology sometimes necessitate financing for homeowners and businesses. Mr. Watson will walk us through the market outlook for solar loans and lending.
It is important to understand the context of financing from the role the Fed, capital markets, solar loans, and green bonds play, to where financial technology (fintech) platforms come in for solar growth. The differences between various lenders and the practices they use can meet some person’s or company’s needs but not others’. Lastly, Mr. Watson will tie all of this together and explain the implications for solar financing in Central Texas.
Mr. Watson was born with a passion for the environment and nature, and since he was a kid, he wanted to be a Game Warden. However, life happened and he has spent most of the past 15 years in corporate finance, business development and private equity with a primary focus on technology commercialization and growth management. In addition to his role at Dividend Finance, he spent seven years working in M&A, due diligence, market research and operational strategy in countries including China, India and Mexico. Mr. Watson is also a Partner at Climate Impact Capital, a Director of Hermes Investment Group, a Kiva Zip trustee, and a SURE Program advisory board member. He holds a BBA in Finance, minor in Spanish, speaks Mandarin Chinese, and is a native Texan.
We hope you will join us for this interesting opportunity to gain more insight into how to actually pay for solar panels to power your home or business!
