FERC chairman McIntyre granted 30-Day extension to act on Department of Energy’s Notice of Proposed Rulemaking


Facing a looming deadline, newly installed FERC Chairman McIntyre requested a 30-day extension to take final action on the Department of Energy's Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on Grid Reliability and Resilience Pricing.

FERC now has until January 10, 2018, to respond to the DOE NOPR, after Secretary Perry granted a 30-day extension to permit the new FERC Commissioners time to review the more than 1,500 comments filed in the proceeding.
