The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) is seeking comments on a massive overhaul of its approach to the transmission grid. Transmission buildout is going to be important for bringing renewable energy to population centers and achieving clean energy goals, but many details about how we can construct transmission in a cost-effective, equitable manner must be worked out. Please join the State Energy & Environmental Impact Center on Friday, September 17th from 1:00pm - 2:30pm ET for a discussion of FERC’s recent advanced notice of proposed rulemaking, Building for the Future Through Electric Regional Transmission Planning and Cost Allocation and Generator Interconnection. 

We will have an overview of FERC’s proposal and then discuss how it relates to state clean energy goals, customer costs, environmental justice, and more.
