Husch Blackwell Senior Counsel Jim Hoecker and other panelists discuss FERC's policies and regulations on the expansion and upgrade of regional transmission facilities aimed at addressing concerns with congestion, aging infrastructure, reliability and delivery of power from location-constrained renewable generation resources. The panel debates the merits of FERC’s proposed rule on regional planning and transmission cost allocation, as well as its inquiry about the value of rate incentives for new transmission.
