“We are pleased by the level of interest resulting from the proposed rule Secretary Perry sent to FERC. As intended, the proposal has jumpstarted a long overdue conversation about grid resiliency.

We are still reviewing comments, but it is clear that there is a significant amount of support for the Secretary’s proposal. It is worth noting that even some critics of the proposal acknowledge there is a problem and that FERC needs to act to address pricing in the electric markets.” - DOE Press Secretary Shaylyn Hynes
