Energy developers can rely on our understanding of all phases of the development process and our excellent relationships with local and federal transmission providers and utilities. KRSA is actively involved in the regional transmission planning arenas at both the Western Electricity Coordinating Council (WECC) and WestConnect levels and is well informed regarding planned and conceptual transmission lines in the region. We monitor transmission corridor planning by governmental and non governmental agencies and federal and state initiatives, and policy issues of interest to the renewable energy industry. Our knowledge of existing, planned and conceptual transmission lines, corridor planning, and renewable energy policy enables us to provide individual, customized assessments of the feasibility of a specific renewable energy project. Major interconnection services include:
KRSA offers a wide variety of consulting services for prospecting and identifying the best site to develop power plant projects. The site selection process is driven by engineers and geospatial analysts with end products in formats that can easily be understood by clients and decision-makers. Considerations include resource assessment, existing electric infrastructure, competition and queue analysis, existing load, topography, previous studies, and additional development constraints.

Our expertise in engineering, geographic information systems, power marketing, and system stability make KRSA an ideal partner for energy developers submitting a Request For Proposal (RFP) response for a bid for a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA). KRSA is able to offer writing services, maps, flow analysis, technical studies, and more services to demonstrate due diligence to prospective power purchasers. KRSA is here to help you make an informed pitch to utilities and power purchasers.
KRSA engineers are able to provide preliminary technical studies early in the development of an energy project. Studies offered include generator injection analysis, feasibility, and system impact studies. Read more about system planning and technical studies here.
A sophisticated understanding of power flow can help avert many development issues and demonstrate due diligence to utilities or potential investors. Power flow maps present an informed argument demonstrating how a generation proposal will impact system stability. Flow maps can be an invaluable resource for determining the optimal location of an energy project. Read more about flow mapping and geographic information systems (GIS) services here.
