How to Intervene 

Individuals have the option to intervene in Commission proceedings. As an intervenor, it can allow individuals to become participants in a proceeding and have the right to request rehearing of Commission orders and seek relief of final agency actions in the U.S. Circuit Courts of Appeal. All motions to intervene should be submitted to the Commission pursuant to 18 C.F.R. § 385.214. The Commission expects parties to intervene in a timely manner based on the reasonably foreseeable issues arising from the applicant's filing and the Commission's notice of filing. 

Motions to intervene must be served on any applicant and subsequent submissions by an intervenor must be served on all parties to the proceeding. Contact information for parties can be downloaded from the service list at the eService link on FERC Online. Service can be via email with a link to the document.

How to be added to the Service List

The Commission's Secretary maintains service lists for FERC proceedings. Service lists are restricted to intervenors. So, you MUST file a request to intervene in order to subscribe to a service list. The only way to be added to a service list is to intervene. Intervenors on the Service List will receive the applicant's filings, Commission documents related to the case, and materials filed by other interested parties. However, as an intervenor, you are also obligated to give copies of what you file to all the other parties on the Service List. Service Lists are available electronically through FERC Online's eService.

How to be added to the Mailing List

While eSubscription is most commonly used by interested parties, mailing lists are established by Commission Staff to ensure that participants in certain natural gas and hydropower project proceedings receive hard copy information about the project. Pursuant to Part 390 of the Commission regulations, persons unable to eSubscribe or desiring to be added to the mail list must file a letter, electronic or in hard copy, with the Secretary of the Commission making their request. Requests must identify the case by name and docket number; for example, P-2000-000 or CP02-396-000 as well as the name, organization, and address of the requesting party.
