Your Chance to Tell the Feds About Electric Market Competition

Michael Giberson

Wish you could tell the federal government just what was wrong (or right) with the state of competition in electricity markets? Here is your chance:

Section 1815 of the Energy Policy Act of 2005 requires the Electric Energy Market Competition Task Force to conduct a study and analysis of competition within the wholesale and retail market for electric energy in the United States and to submit a report to Congress within one year. Section 1815 further requires that the Task Force publish its draft report in the Federal Register for public comment 60 days prior to submitting its final report to the Congress. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, as an agency with a representative on the Task Force, is publishing this notice providing the draft report and seeking public comment on behalf of the Task Force.

FERC offers a press release, which provides a general overview, and the draft report (PDF) itself. Public comments are invited on the report, due on June 26, 2006.

The report is just out, and I haven’t had a chance to read through it yet. I suspect that Lynne or I will have a thing or two to say about electric market competition in the next week or so.
