Keryn is the expert on FERC, and she has some more information on FERC’s comment process on transmission incentives over at StopPATH WV.
As Keryn points out, this comment process is not about eliminating incentives for transmission. That was created by Congress in 2005, and FERC cannot overturn the 2005 Energy Policy Act.
We can push for improvements and changes that will make the FERC incentive program better. Check out my earlier post below for some suggestions. That post also includes important links and a pre-addressed letter that you can use to start your own comments to FERC.
