Proposed Siting Delegation to FERC
The Department of Energy is considering whether to delegate to FERC its authorities related to the conduct of congestion studies and the designation of National Interest Electric Transmission Corridors. The rationale for this delegation, as seen by FERC, is presented in two documents prepared by FERC staff, Transmission Siting Narrative, and Transmission Siting Narrative Outline. DOE seeks comments from interested persons on the two FERC documents, including the question of whether a delegation should be subject to specific conditions.
