St. Paul, MN
Husch Blackwell Senior Counsel, WIRES advisor and former FERC Chairman Jim Hoecker moderates a panel discussion on Regional Transmission Organizations (RTOs). The panel includes the leaders of three large RTOs, which preside over wholesale power markets that serve nearly half the nation's electricity consumers. The panel examines how to ensure regional planning and cost allocation regimes are in compliance with FERC’s Order 1000 and how the individual RTOs have done at delivering low cost and reliable energy to customers.
