AN ORDINANCE APPROVING A TELECOMMUNICATIONS CONTRACT SERVICE AGREEMENT WITH HANSON INFORMATION SYSTEMS, INC., FOR 426 WEST MONROE STREET FOR THE OFFICE OF PUBLIC UTILITIESThis is a standard ordinance to license dark fiber capacity on the City's fiber optic telecommunications system. This ordinance authorizes the City to license dark fiber capacity to Hanson Information Systems, Inc. ("Hanson"), in exchange for payment by Hanson to the City in an estimated amount of $73,500.00 over five years. The Office of Public Utilities has a fiber optic telecommunications system and has been granted certificates of service authority with the Illinois Commerce Commission to provide facilities-based exchange telecommunications services in Sangamon County and interexchange telecommunications services within Illinois. The City's network has the ability to provide WAN (wide area network) services across the system. This allows computers to pass data between remote facilities at speeds that are as fast as in the local buildings. This technology allows for consolidation of computers, servers and the required network equipment along with enhancing the capabilities of the facilities. Hanson has requested two strands of dark fiber connecting their facility at 2433 West White Oaks Drive to 426 West Monroe Street. For this service, Hanson will pay $1,225.00 per month for the term of the contract over a five year period. This will be done by utilizing existing fiber and communication infrastructure. Hanson may elect to terminate this agreement at any time without cause, provided that Hanson shall thereupon pay the remaining monthly charges for the remainder of the five year contract.

AN ORDINANCE AUTHORIZING PAYMENT IN THE AMOUNT OF $4,426,000.00 TO THE ENERGY AUTHORITY, INC. AND MIDCONTINENT INDEPENDENT SYSTEMS OPERATOR, INC. FOR TRANSMISSION SCHEDULE FEES FOR FISCAL YEAR 2018 FOR THE ELECTRIC DIVISION FOR THE OFFICE OF PUBLIC UTILITIESThis is a recurring ordinance for the payment of various fees to maintain the ability to participate in the energy market. This Ordinance authorizes payment in an amount not to exceed $4,426,000.00 to The Energy Authority, Inc. ("TEA") and Midcontinent Independent Systems Operator, Inc. ("MISO") for various fees and costs during Fiscal Year 2018. Schedule 10 fees are $444,000.00, which is 10% of the ordinance amount. Schedule 10 is the MISO Cost Recovery Adder. These are costs which support reliable operation of the electric system as well as associated administrative services & regulatory costs. This pays for system coordination, long-term planning, congestion management, operational planning, maintenance & outage coordination, billing/settlement function, dispute resolution & tariff administration. This also covers annual assessments by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission ("FERG"). Schedule 26/26A fees are $3,982,000.00, which is 90% of the ordinance amount. These are costs which support electric transmission infrastructure upgrades which benefit multiple parties, sometimes encompassing the entire MISO footprint. These projects are thoroughly reviewed by MISO to assess their value in increasing transmission system reliability & allowing for more efficient energy flow thru the system. Projects must meet a specific set of criteria to qualify for costsharing. These costs are then spread over multiple years, so any given yearly assessment represents multiple projects in various stages of funding lifecycle. Schedule 26A is the Multi-Value Project Usage Rate. This rate is charged all to load & exports based on the proportion of the load relative to the total MISO load. A Multi-Value Project addresses a need of region or system wide scope & has significant impact on the MISO footprint as a whole, hence the associated costs are shared across the entire system. The expected Schedule 26A charge to CWLP is $2,765,000 or 62% of this ordinance amount. Schedule 26 is payments for the Transmission Expansion Plan (other than Multi-Value Projects). These are largely projects deemed necessary under the MISO Regional Expansion Criteria & Benefits process prior to implementation of the Multi-Value Project process. Depending on the type of project, allocation to CWLP may be based strictly on the CWLP proportion of MISO load or a combination of load proportion & local benefit. CWLP load represents approximately 0.4% of MISO total load. Theexpected Schedule 26 charge to CWLP is $1,217,000 or 28% of this ordinance amount
