ACORE, National Urban League Letter to FERC on Transmission Planning Rule

The Honorable Willie L. Phillips, James Danly, Allison Clements, and Mark C. Christie
Federal Energy Regulatory Commission
888 First St, NE Washington, DC 20426

Dear Chairman Phillips and Commissioners Danly, Clements, and Christie,

As the CEOs of the National Urban League (NUL) and the American Council on Renewable Energy (ACORE), we are writing to express our appreciation for your commitment to an equitable energy transition and to a 21st-century grid that is reliable, affordable, and sustainable. As you noted in your concurrence on the proposed regional transmission planning and cost allocation rule, an expansion of the nation’s grid is necessary to bring new clean energy resources online and to improve reliability in the face of increasing severe weather events and wildfires.
