Order 888 Petitions Strong on Stranded Costs
About 90 parties have filed petitions seeking changes to Order 888. Claiming "errors," the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC) asked the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to reverse its assertion of:
s Jurisdiction over unbundled retail transmission services
s "Primary" authority over retail stranded-cost recovery when retail consumers convert to wholesale
s "Backstop" authority to provide stranded-cost recovery when an end user changes power suppliers under a state-established retail wheeling system.
