BCSE Comments on FERC Rulemaking Process  for Regional Transmission Planning

Washington, D.C. - The Business Council for Sustainable Energy (BCSE) submitted comments to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) today in response to FERC’s Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on reforms to its regional transmission planning processes.

“Investments in transmission enhance reliability and resilience, lower consumers’ power costs, and achieve public policy goals,” said BCSE President Lisa Jacobson. “Successful transmission planning processes are essential to facilitating the energy transition and will support grid modernization and emissions reductions, as well as family-sustaining jobs.”

“BCSE supports FERC taking action to reform regional transmission planning processes,” she added. “We encourage FERC to adopt holistic and efficient approaches to these procedures.”
