PURPA Redirected

In light of your prescient Frontlines column, “PURPA Redirected(February 2008), I am curious of your insight. Is there a nexus between §571 of EISA and the demand response (DR) text in the pending FERC NOPR, RM07-19-000, “Wholesale Competition in Regions with Organized Electric Markets,” issued Feb. 22, 2008?

DC PSC RFP Technical Consultant for Formal Case (FC) No. 1156

In your opinion, can these two efforts be tied together in a neat bow? If not, is there any straight line at all to be drawn between the Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA) language and this pending FERC docket?

My attention is drawn mostly to ¶¶94 to 96 of the FERC NOPR.
