                              Notice to ISO New England of Transfer Agreement of Use Rights for the Phase I/II HVDC-TF Interconnection
                                                Transfer of Use Rights by Interconnection Rights Holder(s) or “IRH” in accordance with the Restated Use Agreement
Notes:
Phase I/II HVDC-TF Interconnection:
  The high voltage, direct current (“HVDC”) transmission lines and terminal facilities between Quebec, Canada and New England located on the United States side of the border are referred to in the Restated Use Agreement as the
                                                                                                                Interconnection.
   The initial stage of the interconnection facilities (“Phase I”) consists of a bi-polar 450kV HVDC transmission line from the vicinity of Des Cantons Substation on the Hydro-Quebec system near Sherbrooke, Quebec, to a converter
                                   terminal having an approximate rating of 690 MW in the vicinity of and interconnected with the Monroe Generating Station on the Connecticut River in New Hampshire.
 A subsequent stage of construction (“Phase II”) augmented the nominal transfer capability of the interconnection facilities to 2000 MW through construction of an HVDC transmission line from the Monroe Generating Station through
                                                      New Hampshire to a new converter terminal facility adjacent to and interconnected with the Sandy Pond Substation in Massachusetts.


IRH, Indirect IRH and the Restated Use Agreement:
 An Interconnection Rights Holder(s) (“IRH”) is one or more of the entities which hold exclusive rights to the use of the Interconnection by virtue of being parties to the Support Agreements and being financially obligated thereunder to
                                                                                                pay for the costs of the Phase I/II HVDC-TF.
An Indirect IRH is an entity that is not a party to the Restated Use Agreement but which acquires Use Rights in the Phase I/II HVDC-TF through a Transfer Agreement with one or more IRH.
The IRH and Indirect IRH are the financial supporters of the Phase I/II HVDC-TF Interconnection.
The Restated Use Agreement defines the rights of the IRH to use the Phase I/II HVDC-TF, make its rights available to others, and provide for the collective management of those rights through a governance arrangement.

Transfer Agreement:
A Transfer Agreement reflects a transfer of Use Rights from an IRH or Indirect IRH (the "Transferor") that permits all or part of an IRH’s Combined Percentage Interest to be used by another entity (the “Transferee”).
A Transfer Agreement is always reported to the ISO in terms of both Phase I and Phase II Percentage Interest.
A Transfer Agreement is to be for a specified period in full calendar months only.
A Transfer Agreement must be effective on the 1st calendar day of the 1st month in the specified period of time.

Combined Percentage Interest:
An IRH’s Combined Percentage Interest is the percentage of the Nominal Transfer Capability of the Phase I/II HVDC-TF represented by the following fraction: the sum, in megawatts, of:
(a) its Percentage Interest in Phase I times the Nominal Transfer Capability of the Phase I facility, plus
(b) its Percentage Interest in Phase II times [the Nominal Transfer Capability of the Phase II facility minus the Nominal Transfer Capability of the Phase I facility], divided by the Nominal Transfer Capability of the Phase II facility.
The Nominal Transfer Capability of the Phase II facility is 2,000 megawatts.
The Nominal Transfer Capability of the Phase I facility is 690 megawatts.
The difference between the total Nominal Transfer Capability of the Phase II facility (2,000 megawatts) and the Nominal Transfer Capability of the Phase I facility (690 megawatts) is 1,310 megawatts.

Use Rights and HQ Interconnection Capability Credits:

  The net MW amount of all commercial transactions over the Phase I/II HVDC-TF using the Use Rights of a given IRH in any hour, either for a net flow of imports into New England or net flow of exports out of New England for that
         IRH, shall always be limited to the Combined Percentage Interest of that IRH times the Hourly Total Transfer Capability of the Phase I/II HVDC-TF in the direction of that IRH’s net flow over the Phase I/II HVDC-TF.
  The transfer of IRH Use Rights shall always include a transfer of any applicable HQ Interconnection Capability Credits (as defined in the ISO Tariff), in accordance with the ISO Tariff, and may or may not include a transfer of IMC
                                                                                                             voting rights.

IRH Management Committee Membership and Voting Rights:
This TA-1 Form reflects the transfer of Use Rights and, if so desired and so explicitly indicated on the TA-1 Form, the transfer of IRH Management Committee membership voting rights.
   The transfer of IRH Management Committee membership and voting rights to an Indirect IRH pursuant to a Transfer Agreement must also be expressly communicated via written notice of the transfer of such voting rights to the
                                                                                                Secretary of the IRH Management Committee.

Making Use Rights Available Through OASIS:
  As an alternative, Use Rights may be made available by an IRH that is a Schedule 20A Service Provider to eligible transmission customers through Schedule 20A of Part II of the ISO Tariff, as such offerings are posted on their
                                                                                        Transmission Provider Page on the ISO OASIS.

TA-1 Form Submittal Requirements:
  In order for the ISO to recognize and administer the transfer of Use Rights, the Transferor shall provide notice of such transfer via the TA-1 Form at least thirty (30) calendar days prior to the effective date of such transfer, or with
                                                                 such other advance notice as required by ISO in order to conform with applicable Operating Documents.
