On Friday, March 27, 2020 FERC Chairman Neil Chatterjee convened a conference call with state public utility commissioners (members of the National Association of  Regulatory Utility Commissioners - NARUC), state energy officials (members of the National Association of State Energy Officials - NASEO) and representatives from the National Governors Association, to discuss Coronavirus response measures.  The briefing included statements by the Directors of FERC’s Office of the Executive Director, Office of Electricity Reliability and the Office of Energy Infrastructure Security.  FERC has 1,400 employees working remotely.  FERC staff reported regular communications  with the RTOs and ISOs and indicated no present threats to bulk electric system reliability.  In-person audits and testimony through the Office of Enforcement have been cancelled until July.  NARUC President Brandon Presley of the Mississippi Commission also stressed the importance of state-federal cooperation. Jeff Genzer of DWGP participated on the call in his role as NASEO Counsel.  If you have any questions, please contact Jeff Genzer.
