Beginning on Page 9 of the NOI, the Commission poses some general, overarching questions regarding the effect their incentives have had on the goals set forth in Section 219. Read the introduction and history on pages 1 - 9, and consider all the other aspects of the transmission incentives covered in the NOI, and let FERC know what you think the effect has been.
The incentives have caused a "gold rush" to new transmission projects, while our existing transmission grid withers and fails from neglect. Because of the excessive profit to be made with new projects that FERC created with their incentives policies, the original intent of Sec. 219 has been completely perverted. The ultimate outcome of this is that the consumers have been saddled with an incredible amount of debt while energy corporations rake in an incredible amount of profit.
If you found this helpful in crafting your comments, you are encouraged to browse the entire FERC Transmission NOI category at StopPATHwv.com for other useful material. You don't have to comment on all aspects of the NOI if that's too burdensome. In fact, if you want to concentrate in detail on just one aspect that interests you and about which you have strong feelings, that's a perfectly acceptable approach to producing effective comments.
