Jul 15 2021


WASHINGTON DC, July 15, 2021 –The American Clean Power Association (ACP) released the following statement after a FERC meeting that announced the start of an inquiry to consider broad reforms to transmission rules:

“The American Clean Power association applauds FERC for starting the long-needed conversation on comprehensive transmission reforms that will help ensure the nation has a 21st century grid that can cost-effectively and reliably connect power sources to consumers to meet current and future needs. Reforms to FERC’s rules for transmission planning, cost allocation, and interconnection hold the promise of unlocking investments that will spur the development of additional high-priority, high-voltage transmission lines that will help move cheaper and cleaner electricity to where it is needed. This will help keep pace with the administration’s targets to decarbonize the energy sector and create thousands of jobs needed to build this infrastructure. ACP and our members look forward to working with FERC to ensure that our nation’s transmission system is modernized to keep pace with our clean energy future.”– Heather Zichal, CEO American Clean Power Association
