The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has released proposed rules for real-time information networks and standards of conduct, a "critical" supplement to its electric transmission open-access NOPR (Docket No. RM95-9-000). The FERC wants all utilities to set up information networks that give wholesale sellers and purchasers of electricity equal access to information concerning availability and prices. Five major types of information would be posted:

s Available and total transfer capability

s Provider and reseller transmission service offers and prices

s Provider and third-party ancillary service offers and prices

s Specific transmission service requests and responses

s Informal transmission communications.
