The Pennsylvania PUC issued an Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on Thursday. The topic is the regulation of Distributed Energy Resources (“DER”) participating in the wholesale markets. The rulemaking is quite comprehensive, acknowledging the line between wholesale (FERC) and retail (PA) regulation. It will address some of the very complex issues where resolution is required for effective DER regulation, such that consumers can benefit from these very promising technologies. Frank is looking forward to working with stakeholders during the rulemaking process. The ANOPR and the commission’s joint statement on its release can be found at the links below:
