PJM Responds to Comments on Demand Response Stop Gap Proposal

PJM is responding to comments and protests on its Demand Response Stop Gap proposal filed with the Federal Energy Commission. PJM posted its responses to FERC on its web site late yesterday.

PJM asked FERC to rule on its original proposal by early April. The proposal offers a way for demand response to continue to participate in the PJM capacity market in a manner that minimizes the risk that the auction results would later be invalidated in the event the U.S. Supreme Court declines to review the Electric Power Supply Association v. FERC jurisdictional issue.
