Comments to FERC on Transmission Incentives

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) proposed changes to its electric transmission incentives, which aim to spur the deployment of technologies that enhance reliability, efficiency, and capacity of transmission facilities. We submitted comments identifying significant problems with the proposal, including its reliance on a benefit-cost ratio for project selection. We encourage FERC to make greater use of performance-based regulation and competitive procurement to incentivize transmission development.
