EPSA, IPPNY seek new hearing before FERC on demand response

The Electric Power Supply Association (EPSA) and the Independent Power Producers of New York (IPPNY) have asked the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) for a rehearing of a case that involves behind-the-meter generation.

EPSA and IPPNY filed their legal arguments for rehearing on Dec. 20. The parties ask FERC to revisit a Nov. 22 order. EPSA and IPPNY believe FERC erred in granting the complaint filed by the “demand response supporters.”

Specifically, the parties are concerned about the decision to allow the New York Independent System Operator (NYISO) to allow behind-the-meter generation to participate in its day-ahead demand response program.

EPSA is the national trade association representing competitive power suppliers, including generators and marketers. IPPNY is a not-for-profit trade association representing the independent power industry in New York State.

The FERC case is Docket No. EL13-74-001.
