Retail Choice Proceeding Testimony
Synapse provided testimony in an on-going retail choice proceeding involving an Entergy subsidiary in East Texas (Entergy Gulf States). Synapse assisted the Texas Office of People’s Counse in evaluating Entergy’s proposal for an “independent” subsidiary to oversee the transition to a retail open access structure authorized by the Texas legislature. Synapse compared the proposed “independent” Entergy subsidiary to the standards and criteria that FERC applies to applications for Independent System Operators (ISOs) and Regional Transmission Organizations (RTOs) and provided testimony before the Texas PUC. Project completed in May 2004.
