Rule 4906-3-05 | Alternatives in standard certificate applications.
All standard certificate applications for electric power transmission facilities and gas pipelines shall include fully developed information on two sites/routes. Applicants for electric power generation facilities may choose to include fully developed information on two or more sites. Each proposed site/route shall be designated as a preferred or an alternate site/route. Each proposed site/route shall be a viable alternative on which the applicant could construct the proposed facility. Two routes shall be considered as alternatives if not more than twenty per cent of the routes are in common. The percentage in common shall be calculated based on the shorter of the two routes. Any segment of a route that makes use of existing transmission structures or is entirely within existing transmission rights-of-way may be excluded from the calculation of the percentage in common. Standard certificate applications may include information on additional alternatives, which may include site, route, major equipment, or other alternatives.
