FERC Proposes Standard Market Framework

LCG, March 13, 2002--The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) presented an outline for nationally standardizing the U.S. energy market.

The Commission will provide a paper on standard market design involving the development of open-access transmission tariff which would fall under the administration of regional transmission organizers (RTO). RTO's will be responsible for preventing generators from influencing prices by withholding power.

After the Supreme Court Decision last week validating FERC's authority over wholesale transmission sales, the commission is in a position to dictate rules for the competitive market, taking control from the hands of state regulators.

FERC plans to instate a method for electricity pricing called Location Marginal Pricing (LMP), an approach used by mid-Atlantic PJM Interconnection LLC which allows those in the market to circumvent price risk from congestion.
