339. ORDER #31 (COMMISSION) The Commission finds that Midwest Independent Transmission System Operation (MISO) has a unique and direct interest in this proceeding that is not adequately represented by any other party. Further, although MISO's Petition was not timely filed in accordance with the requirements of Order No. 1 issued in this Docket on February 11, 2010, the Commission will make an exception in this instance given MISO's unique interest in this proceeding and given that no party to this proceeding has filed an objection to MISO's Petition. Accordingly, MISO's Petition is granted in part as conditioned hereinafter. The Commission is inclined to provide MISO some leeway to file limited testimony on March 18,2011. The Commission finds that such limited testimony will be helpful to the Commission and the other parties as they review and evaluate the cost/benefit studies to be filed by CRA on March 11. Therefore, allowing such limited testimony is in the public interest. The Commission will allow MISO, as well as Southwest Power Pool Regional Transmission Organization (SPP RTO), if they wish, to file limited testimony by noon on March 18, 2011. The scope of such testimony shall be limited exclusively to the cost/benefit studies to be filed by CRA and EAI/ESI on March 11, 2011, as directed by Order No. 30. Any additional testimony that either MISO or SPP RTO may wish to offer shall be filed in accordance with the procedural schedule established by Order No. 29 of this Docket. Kr

EAI's final assessment and recommendations shall be based upon the most up-to-date assessment information available. This filing also shall include expected implementation time lines and costs for the final strategic reorganization option recommended and testimony regarding the public interest of such option; 7. By noon on August 18, 2011, Staff and Intervenors shall file Surrebuttal Testimony in response to the Supplemental Rebuttal Testimony and Supplemental Initial Testimony to be filed by EAI on August 4, 2011.

655. ORDER #54 (COMMISSION) The purpose of this Order is to provide guidance to EAI regarding the finalization of its post-ESA reorganization plans, which must be in place no later than Wednesday, December 18, 2013, at which time Entergy Arkansas Inc., (EAI) will exit the ESA. EAI has requested Commission guidance “sooner rather than later” so it can eliminate pursuit of multiple reorganization paths, both to save time and resources. This Order provides guidance to EAI regarding the circumstances under which EAI’s post-ESA reorganization will serve the public interest, convenience and necessity as required by Arkansas law. … The Commission directs EAI to file a concrete, integrated plan for EAI’s post-ESA reorganization, independent of the other OpCos, including generation planning, resource acquisition and all other aspects of its utility operations excluding transmission as soon as possible but in any event no later than January 11, 2012, as described more fully below. … The Commission directs EAI to file its plan for integration into an RTO, without regard to the timing or other considerations of the other OpCos, within thirty (30) days of this Order. … In order for the Commission to remain informed and abreast of all post-ESA reorganization activities undertaken by EAI between this Order’s issuance and December 18, 2013, EAI shall file periodic reports on the following matters—among others as required—as dictated below. The obligation for filing these Reports carries with it the obligation to engage in constructive, aggressive and meaningful activities to ensure EAI will operate independently from the OpCos no later than December 19, 2013, and thereafter. In addition, these reporting requirements will remain in effect until EAI is relieved of such obligation by Commission order. Note: for any filings pursuant to this Order due on an Arkansas state holiday or weekend, the report is due on the following business day. In addition, all filings are due no later than 12 noon. 1. Beginning on January 6, 2012, and on the first business day of each month thereafter: a) EAI shall provide a status report related to continued efforts to improve the ICT arrangement to maximize the benefits of the ICT and make progress on construction and other improvements to the ETS, including the progress of plans for post-November 2012 reconfiguration or reorganization (when the current ICT arrangement expires); b) EAI shall provide a detailed explanation, in the form of testimony, regarding EAI’s efforts and plans for post-ESA generation planning on an EAI-only basis, including resource procurement, etc.; c) EAI shall file a report regarding EAI’s efforts and plans for post-ESA transmission infrastructure planning on an EAI-only basis; and d) EAI shall file a status report regarding all transmission construction projects planned or being undertaken in EAI’s footprint, including amounts budgeted for each project and the in-service dates (both estimated and actual). 2. Beginning on January 6, 2012, and on the first business day of each month thereafter, EAI shall provide a progress report on all activities associated with transitioning to membership in an RTO, including an estimate of costs expended to date and the anticipated timeline for integration. For all reports subsequent to the November 30, 2011 report, details should include only those activities that have occurred or circumstances that have changed since filing the prior month’s report. The Commission appreciates that EAI has, at this point in time, some difficult and serious decisions to make in order to balance the interests of its ratepayers and shareholders while satisfying the dictates of this Commission as embodied in this Order and developed throughout the entirety of this Docket. After twenty months of inquiry, including multiple rounds of testimony and hearings, it is clear that under any reasonable scenario, EAI will be able to effectively, efficiently and timely reorganize for post-ESA operations beginning no later than Thursday, December 19, 2013. kr

956. ORDER #72 (COMMISSION) The Commission orders and directs as follows: 1) Entergy Arkansas, Inc., (EAI) and Midwest Independent Transmission System Operator (MISO) separate Motion for Finding of Compliance are granted as clarified herein. Therefore, EAI is hereby authorized to sign the MISO Transmission Owners Agreement and move forward with the EAI/MISO integration process; 2) Final approval of EAI's application will be held in abeyance pending satisfaction of the following directives; 3) MISO is directed to expeditiously file in this Docket proof that MISO's governance Proposals A and B have each been officially approved and adopted by the appropriate MISO entities; 4) upon satisfactory compliance by MISO with the immediately preceding directive, the Commission will: (a) issue an order granting conditional approval of EAI's Application subject to EAI's and MISO's ongoing compliance with the Order No. 68 Conditions as clarified by the Commission hereinabove; and (b) issue an order establishing a procedural schedule for expedited consideration of MISO's Application for a Certificate of Convenience and Necessity currently pending in Docket No. 11-165-U; and 5) Given that EAI's and MISO separate Alternative Petitions for Rehearing of Order No. 68 were pled only in the alternative if the Commission were to decide that EAI and MISO had not adequately complied with the Order No. 68 Conditions, and given the findings hereinabove regarding EAI's and MISO's compliance with those conditions, the Commission finds that the Alternative Petitions for Rehearing are rendered moot by this Order.

957. ERRATA ORDER #73 (COMMISSION) On October 26, 2012, the Arkansas Public Service Commission (Commission) issued Order No. 72 in the above-styled Docket. The last paragraph regarding Condition No. 12 beginning on page 20 and continuing on page 21 of Order No. 72 is corrected to read as follows: First noting that the ERSC bylaws currently require a unanimous vote to exercise its authority, EAI states that it will “support any action by the ERSC to revise its voting process ..., including to allow ... actions to be taken on a vote that is less than unanimous.” EAI Compliance Filing at 29, McDonald Compliance Testimony at 28. MISO “confirms that, during the Entergy/MISO transition period, the Entergy retail. regulators will have the same governance authority as now possessed by the ERSC, including but not limited to, the ability to take action on transmission planning and associated cost allocation.” However, MISO correctly notes that the ERSC Bylaws control the ERSC voting procedures and that “a change to that construct would need to be made by the ERSC members themselves. "MISO witness Clair Moeller does state however that MISO “can support the construct: the Commission requires in Condition 12.’’ MISO Compliance Filing at 16-17, Moeller Compliance Testimony at 10-11. Accordingly, the Commission finds that EAI and MISO have complied with this condition. Cm

1003. ORDER #76 (COMMISSION) Therefore, the Commission finds that Entergy Arkansas, Inc. (EAI's) Application to Transfer Functional Control of its Electric Transmission Facilities to the Midwest Independent Transmission System Operator (MISO) Regional Transmission Organization is supported by substantial evidence of record and is in the public interest, conditioned upon full and continued compliance by EAI and MISO with each of the Order No.68 Conditions. Accordingly, the Commission orders and directs as follows: 1.EAI’s Application to Transfer Functional Control of its Electric Transmission Facilities to the Midwest Independent Transmission System Operator Regional Transmission Organization is granted conditioned upon full and continued compliance by EAI and MISO with each of the Order No. 68 Conditions; 2. Failure by EAI or MISO to comply fully with each of the Order No. 68 Conditions will trigger action by the Commission pursuant to Condition No. 5; 3. EAI’s Motion to Discontinue Activities Necessary to Operate as a true Stand-Alone Electric Utility is granted; 4. EAI’s request for approval to defer its MISO transition costs, without the addition of carrying costs, is granted subject to EAI compliance with the five ratepayer protection provisions as recommended by Staff witness Hilton and as set forth above. However, a prudence finding regarding such transition costs is specifically reserved to be addressed and considered in a later proceeding in which EAI seeks to incorporate such costs into its retail rates. Also, nothing in this Order shall constitute a finding that such costs are approved for recovery through EAI’s retail rates; 5. EAI and MISO are directed to file in this Docket on the first business day of each month, beginning on May 1, 2013, Supplemental Testimony providing monthly updates regarding the progress of the integration of EAI into MISO process; critical developments in the various Entergy/MISO related proceedings pending before the FERC and before Entergy’s other retail regulators; and ongoing compliance with the Order No. 68 Conditions; 6.By subsequent Order the Commission will establish a procedural schedule for the consideration of MISO’s Application for a Certificate of Convenience and Necessity (CCN) (MISO’s Application) pending before the Commission in Docket No. 11-165-U. By its Application MISO seeks an Arkansas CCN “to transact the business of an electric public utility in the State of Arkansas for the limited purpose of asserting functional control over transmission facilities of MISO transmission owning members subject to this Commission’s jurisdiction.” MISO Application at 9. Upon the issuance of a procedural schedule by the Commission, Docket No.11-165-U will proceed toward conclusion and a final ruling. Sr

ORDER NO.77 (COMMISSION) The Commission finds that Entergy Arkansas, Inc., (EAI) participation in the Midcontinent Independent System Operator (MISO) Planning Resource Auction is anticipated to provide benefits and minimize risks for EAI’s customers and, therefore is in the public interest at this time.

Staff shall file responsive testimony within 30 days of the filing of EAI’s annual report as described above. Such testimony shall detail any recommendations regarding EAI’s continuing participation in the Auction; 5.

ORDER #78 (COMMISSION) Therefore, the Commission finds, as a preliminary matter, that Entergy Arkansas, Inc., (EAI) apparent intention (as stated in Docket No. 12-069-U) to engage in joint transmission planning with the other Entergy OpCos appears to be a violation of Conditions 2(a) and 2(b) of Order No. 68 of this Docket. The Commission further finds, as a preliminary matter, that EAI should demonstrate its earlier commitment to comply with Conditions No. 2(a) and 2(b) of Order No. 68 by affirming that it: 1) Will not jointly plan transmission with the other OpCos as a separate step in the context of the transmission planning processes for MISO and MISO South; 2) Will designate itself as the NERC-registered Transmission Planner; 3) Will not use the ESI Service Agreements as a vehicle for joint transmission planning with the other Entergy OpCos; 4) Will not participate in a separate Entergy committee established to oversee the Entergy OpCos’ participation in the MTEP process and to discuss reliability planning issues; and 5) Will not participate in the development of a consolidated Entergy planning model to be provided to MISO to initiate the MTEP planning process, but will instead provide its own separate planning model as part of the MTEP planning process. Accordingly, EAI and MISO are directed to file in this Docket within twenty (20) days of the date of this Order Supplemental Testimony demonstrating why the Commission should not find that EAI and MISO are in violation of Condition No. 2(a) and 2(b) of Order No. 68. kr
