Connecticut Dep't of Pub. Util. Control v. FERC, No. 08-1199

By FindLaw Staff on January 31, 2010 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In a petition for review of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's (FERC) order increasing the permissible return on equity for a regional organization of transmission owners, the petition is denied where: 1) nothing in the law or FERC's stated purposes required FERC to adduce evidence that the order would produce new transmission investment; and 2) FERC adduced substantial evidence for the proposition that the incentive was likely to increase the speed with which projects were completed.
