Environmental Assessment of FERC Rulemaking on RTOs
Synapse drafted comments in response to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's May 14, 1999 "Notice of Intent to Prepare an Environmental Assessment for the Regional Transmission Organizations Rulemaking." The comments addressed the potential for broadening competition to have negative environmental consequences and the opportunities for RTOs to reduce barriers to market entry for renewable generators and to improve environmental quality. The comments were submitted by the Project for Sustainable FERC Energy Policy, on behalf of seventeen environmental organizations. Project completed in 1999.
