The NOI, issued in May 2011, solicited public comment on FERC's policies for awarding financial incentives to transmission projects. And the public responded. FERC was deluged with hundreds of comments from elected officials, corporate beneficiaries of the incentives, trade groups, and most importantly an avalanche of comments from the most significant "stakeholders" of all -- you, the consumer who pays for the incentives.
Yesterday, FERC issued the agenda for its November 15 public meeting. Item E-3 is expected to be the first word from the Commission on how incentives policy will be reformed.
If you submitted a comment, you will be served with a copy of the Commission's order after the meeting concludes.
The Commission may comment on the order during the meeting. You may watch a webcast of the meeting here. Look under "News and Commission Meetings" to find the link to the video.
And pat yourself on the back... it's time to harvest the fruit of citizen action!
