A technical conference will be held by the FERC on Monday, 9 May 2016, beginning at 10:00 a.m. and ending at approximately 3:30 p.m., at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street, NE, Washington, DC 20426. All interested parties are invited to attend the conference. Commission members may participate in the conference.

The purpose of the technical conference is to examine the issues raised in the protests and comments regarding the 19 February 2016 filing made by Algonquin Gas Transmission, LLC (Algonquin). In that filing, Algonquin proposed to exempt from the capacity release bidding requirements certain types of capacity releases of firm transportation by electric distribution companies that are participating in state-regulated electric reliability programmes. Issues to be examined at the technical conference include concerns raised regarding the basis and need for the waiver.

Those interested in speaking at the technical conference should notify the Commission by 25 April 2016 by completing the online form at the following webpage: here. Those interested in attending the technical conference are encouraged, but not required, to register at the following webpage: here.
