WIRES, an international non-profit trade association that promotes investment in the high voltage electric transmission grid to sustain the North American electric economy, submitted comments in response to two FERC NOIs: Policy to Determine Return on Equity (Docket No. PL19-4-000) and Electric Transmission Incentives Policy (Docket No. PL19-3-000) and has issued the following statement:

“WIRES believes that sustained investment in a more robust and integrated transmission grid is critical to support an increasingly electrified regional and national economy. FERC has a key role in creating a positive investment climate for transmission, which has to be resilient, capable of integrating diverse low-cost energy resources and advanced technology, and able to serve consumers and industry that have rapidly changing demands for electricity. Our comments support a stronger response by regulators to those needs.”
