New England Generators Challenge Sloped Demand Curve
New England power generators asked a federal appeals court to overturn Federal Energy Regulatory Commission orders that accepted ISO-NE’s change to a sloped demand curve in advance of this year’s Forward Capacity Auction.
NextEra Energy Resources, NRG Energy and Public Service Enterprise Group filed a petition for review Monday in the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals.
A year ago, ISO-NE and the New England Power Pool Participants Committee jointly filed revisions to the RTO’s Tariff to establish a system-wide sloped demand curve for the Forward Capacity Market, which were accepted by FERC (ER14-1369). A rehearing request of what became known as the Demand Curve Order was denied by FERC on Jan. 30.
