The American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) has issued the following statement on the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's (FERC) decision to reject a wind-tariff proposal from investor-owned utility Puget Sound Energy:
‘We applaud the commission's decision to protect ratepayers and renewable energy sources from this discriminatory proposed charge,’ says Denise Bode, CEO of AWEA. ‘No other generators have these charges assessed, and with this order, we expect utilities will give up their interest in assessing these charges to renewable sources.’
FERC's order is available at elibrary.FERC.gov.
