FERC Proposes Reforms to Improve Wind and Solar Access to Grid


The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission recently proposed a set of reforms with the objective to ensure variable energy resources are reliably and efficiently integrated into the electric grid at rates, terms and conditions that are just and reasonable, and not unduly discriminatory or preferential.

On November 18, 2010, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, in which it proposed a set of reforms aimed at removing barriers to the integration of variable energy resources (VERs), e.g., wind and solar, into the wholesale power grid. Comments on the proposed rule are due 60 days after the notice is published in the Federal Register.
