FERC and NARUC to Create Joint Federal-State Task Force on Electric Transmission
- Jun 23, 2021 1:18 pm GMT
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) and the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC) have recently formed a joint federal-state task force on electric transmission. This unique body will explore transmission-related issues to identify and realize the benefits of an improved transmission system, whilst sharing the costs fairly.
The effective development of new transmission infrastructure is essential as the country continues to transition to clean energy resources. Federal and state regulators will be called upon to address numerous issues, including how to plan and finance new transmission infrastructure and how to navigate shared federal-state regulatory authority and processes. It is clear that the time is ripe for greater federal-state coordination and cooperation.
