FERC Transmission Incentives Policy
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission is due to receive reply comments on proposed revisions to its transmission incentives policy and corresponding regulations. The commission proposed the revisions in light of changes to transmission and planning over the past few years. Specifically, the proposal would modify the incentive for transmitting and electric utilities that join transmission organizations. The agency proposes to require each utility that received an incentive for joining and remaining in such organizations for three or more years to remove the incentive from its transmission tariff.
