Docket No. AD21-15-000
On June 17, 2021, the Commission established a Joint Federal-State Task Force on Electric Transmission (Task Force) to formally explore transmission-related topics outlined in the Commission’s order. The Commission stated that the Task Force will convene for multiple formal meetings annually, which will be open to the public for listening and observing and on the record. The Task Force has convened for two public meetings: on November 10, 2021, in Louisville, Kentucky; and on February 16, 2022, in Washington, DC. The third public meeting of the Task Force will be held virtually on May 6, 2022, from approximately 10:00 am to 4:00 pm Eastern time. Commissioners may attend and participate in this meeting.
As explained in the Establishing Order, the Commission will issue agendas for each meeting of the Task Force, after consulting with all Task Force members and considering suggestions from state commissions. The Establishing Order set forth a broad array of transmission-related topics that the Task Force has the authority to examine with a focus on topics related to planning and paying for transmission, including transmission to facilitate generator interconnection, that provides benefits from a federal and state perspective.
Discussion at the May 6, 2022 meeting will be focused on examining barriers to the efficient, expeditious, and reliable interconnection of new resources through the FERC-jurisdictional interconnection processes, including the allowance of participant funding for interconnection-related network upgrades in regional transmission organizations and independent system operators. All interested persons, including all state commissioners, are hereby invited to file comments in this docket suggesting agenda items relating to this topic by April 12, 2022. The Task Force members will consider the suggested agenda items in developing the agenda for the May 6, 2022 public meeting. The Commission will issue the agenda no later than April 22, 2022, for the meeting to be held on May 6, 2022.
