("MISO") market since the market began in 2005. TEA assisted CWLP with the registration and participation in the MISO from that first day.

Today CWLP continues to rely on the expertise and socialized costs of external service providers, like The Energy Authority and Power Settlements, to provide valuable market services. The Energy Authority Resource Management Agreement, and Task Order Agreement, contains the scope of services provided by TEA. TEA, mostly, shall be responsible for assisting CWLP with the capacity, energy and transmission markets, including CWLP's participation in the MISO market. In order to provide these services TEA must provide the necessary hardware and software infrastructure, and access to a highly skilled staff that can perform risk management, credit analysis, hedging strategies and settlements, among other things. TEA performs these services for CWLP's entire portfolio with the MISO market, and outside of the MISO market. CWLP's new agreement with TEA is expected to cost $8,067,035.00, over the course of 10 years. This new agreement leads to a savings of $1 ,069,992.00, compared to our existing agreement, which would cost $9, 137 ,026.90 , over the same timeframe. Power Settlements provides software services to CWLP, allowing access to a database that downloads data up to once a minute from MISO. This database assists CWLP with reporting, accounting and business decisions. The new agreement is expected to cost CWLP nearly the same as the previous agreement, which is $282,011 .43.
