Energy 1.17.18
This legal quick hit will discuss the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s (FERC) termination of the grid resiliency and pricing rulemaking initiated by the Department of Energy on September 29, 2017. The proposed rule would have required independent system operators (ISOs) and regional transmission organizations (RTOs) to establish tariff provisions (1) for purchasing energy from “reliability and resilience resources” that have a 90-day fuel supply on-site and could provide certain services such as voltage support, frequency, operating reserves and reactive power, and (2) for such resources to recover costs and return on equity. Terminating the rulemaking ends one of the Trump Administration’s near-term efforts to stem the retirement of nuclear- and coal-fired generation assets. However, FERC has initiated a new administrative proceeding (AD18-7) that will allow the agency to explore ways to address the administration and industry concerns.
