Bhaveeta Mody Presented on FERC’s Electric Transmission Incentives Policy at APPA National Conference
On June 11, 2019, DWGP Attorney Bhaveeta K. Mody presented on the topic of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s (FERC) electric transmission incentives regulations and policy (Incentives Policy) at the American Public Power Association’s National Conference in Austin, Texas.
Ms. Mody discussed FERC’s implementation of its current Incentives Policy as established in FERC Order No. 679. Order No. 679 was issued pursuant to the mandates of the federal Energy Policy Act of 2005, which added a new Section 219 to the Federal Power Act, directing FERC to promulgate a rule providing incentive-based rates for electric transmission for the purpose of benefitting consumers through increased reliability and lower costs of power.
