The South Carolina Regional Transmission Planning (SCRTP) process was established by South Carolina Electric & Gas Company (SCE&G) and the South Carolina Public Service Authority (Santee Cooper) to meet the transmission planning requirements of FERC Order No. 890, 890-A and 890-B, orders designed to "prevent undue discrimination and preference in transmission service."

FERC Order No. 890
On March 15, 2007 the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) published in the Federal Register a final rule reforming the 1996 open-access transmission regulatory framework rules in Orders No. 888 and 889. This final rule, called FERC Order No. 890, was adopted by FERC on February 15, 2007. FERC Order No. 890 was designed to "prevent undue discrimination and preference in transmission service". Among other requirements, this order requires transmission providers to establish an open, transparent and coordinated transmission planning process that includes stakeholder involvement. The SCRTP process is the instrument that SCE&G and Santee Cooper will use to achieve compliance to Order No. 890 Transmission Planning requirements.
