REGIONAL PLANNING

CCPG Foothills Subcommittee

Foothills MapFoothills was formed in 1980 by Platte River, Public Service, Tri-State, and Western to coordinate planning studies and transmission system engineering activities focused specifically on the interconnected transmission system in the northern Front Range area of Colorado.

The Foothills area generally includes the transmission system north of Denver, bounded by Cheyenne in the north, Greeley in the east, Brighton in the south, and Estes Park in the west.

Foothills members voluntarily contribute time and efforts of their operations and planning engineers to perform transmission studies, develop operating procedures, coordinate transmission plans and seek opportunities for joint projects.

The Foothills transmission system is a load-serving system which operates with a net import and with through-flows from Ault to Denver on the TOT 7 path.
