South Carolina Public Service v. FERC

South Carolina Public Service v. FERC - 8/15/14. In the U.S. Court of Appeals, D.C. Circuit, Case No. 12-1232 (Consolidated with 12-1233, 12-1250, 12-1276, 12-1279, 12-1280, 12-1285, 12-1292, 12-1293, 12-1296, 12-1299, 12-1300, 12-1304, 12-1448, 12-1478). The case involves numerous challenges to the most recent reforms of electric transmission planning and cost allocation adopted by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission pursuant to the Federal Power Act. The Panel ruled that FERC had authority; it  reasonably determined that regional planning must include consideration of transmission needs driven by public policy requirements; and it reasonably relied upon the reciprocity condition. Petition denied.
