NRECA and Coops Challenge FERC's Self-Supply Order

The National Rural Electric Cooperative Association, along with several coops, munis, industrial customers and the American Public Power Association, has requested a rehearing of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's controversial November 17th orde
January 9, 2012

The National Rural Electric Cooperative Association, along with several coops, munis, industrial customers and the American Public Power Association, has requested a rehearing of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's controversial November 17th order on the issue of self-supply.  The order questions whether load-serving entities such as electric coops can self-supply the power needed to meet their capacity obligations in the PJM Interconnection regional transmission organization.  An earlier order required changes in the annual auction process through which coops are required to demonstrate that they will have sufficient generating capacity to meet the needs of their consumers.  The NRECA is arguing that the new case-by-case approach would have a "chilling effect" on new generation investment.  Click here to read more about the NRECA's challenge.
