FERC Issues New Open Access Order

Posted in Electricity Transmission,USA Federal by Cheryl Morgan on the June 20th, 2008

FERC has issued a new Open Access Transmission Tariff Order, No. 890, which revises and updates the famous Orders 888 and 889. Specific priorities for the new order, other than strengthening the existing rules, are:

  • To provide greater specificity in the pro forma OATT to reduce opportunities for the exercise of undue discrimination, make undue discrimination easier to detect, and facilitate the Commission’s enforcement; and
  • To increase transparency in the rules applicable to planning and use of the transmission system.

An overview of the new order can be found here, and there is commentary from Platts here.
