On August 19, 2014, the Department issued a Federal Register Notice announcing the availability of a draft of its National Electric Transmission Congestion Study for public comment. The public comment period will close on October 20, 2014. The draft study is now available for review and downloading, below.
Written comments may be submitted electronically to Congestionstudy.firstname.lastname@example.org. Written comments may also be delivered by conventional mail to David Meyer, Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability, U.S. Department of Energy, 1000 Independence Ave., SW, Washington, DC 20585. Commenters are cautioned, however, that all conventional mail to the Department is subject to an automatic security screening process that may take up to three weeks and sometimes renders mailed material illegible. Comments will be posted online.
After reviewing and considering comments on the draft study, the Department will prepare and release a final version of the study.
