Clean energy advocates denounce court decision on PJM rules


On June 20, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia upheld the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s (FERC) approval of the PJM Interconnection’s new electricity market rules. According to several clean energy advocacy groups, by requiring all energy resources to perform year-round, the new rules threaten to pile on extra costs for customers and discriminate against wind and solar power.
