FERC - What's New?

New policy will be effective on October 1, 2015
FERC today approved a new Policy Statement allowing interstate natural gas pipelines to seek to recover through a surcharge mechanism certain capital expenditures made to modernize pipeline system infrastructure in a manner that enhances system reliability, safety and regulatory compliance.
FERC today took further steps to improve coordination of wholesale natural gas and electricity market scheduling as the nation increasingly relies on gas for electric generation. The Final Rule, together with prior Commission actions, will help ensure the reliable and efficient operation of both the interstate natural gas pipeline and electricity systems. This Final Rule represents the culmination of more than three years of Commission efforts to evaluate whether changes are needed to the scheduling practices of the natural gas and electric industry in order to better ensure the reliable and efficient operations of our interstate natural gas pipelines and our electricity systems.

Comments on the draft EIS must be received in Washington, DC on or before June 1, 2015. Once the final EIS is issued, the FERC Commissioners will take into consideration the FERC staff’s recommendations when the Commission makes a decision on the project.
Commission staff prepared a final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the relicensing of the Alabama Power Company’s (Alabama Power) existing 182.5-megawatt Martin Dam Hydroelectric Project (Martin Dam Project). The Martin Dam Project is located on the Tallapoosa River in Tallapoosa, Coosa, and Elmore Counties, Alabama. The project occupies 1.39 acres of land administered by the Bureau of Land Management.
