North America ((RTO) Regional Transmission Organization) Territories, 2008)

Description
The Platts Regional Transmission Organization (RTO) Territories geospatial data layer contains regions representing the geographic extent of the regions that RTOs oversee. The role of an RTO is to ensure equal treatment of industry participants using the transmission lines within a region and to control the wholesale bulk electric system through coordination of planning and operations. A desired outcome of RTOs is to improve the efficient use of the electric transmission system as well as to create greater competition within the wholesale market.
