PJM Supports FERC in Appeal to Supreme Court on DR

PJM filed comments July 9, 2015, with the U.S. Supreme Court in support of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s conclusion that it has jurisdiction over demand response in wholesale markets.

PJM filed as an intervener in the appeal to the EPSA case, currently in review with the high court. FERC appealed the D.C. Circuit Court’s decision in favor of EPSA’s case, which challenged the FERC’s jurisdiction in demand response. The Supreme Court announced in May 2015 it would review the appeal.
