NEPGA Files Answer in MOPR Elimination Proceeding – No. ER22-1528-000

On May 5, 2022, NEPGA filed an Answer to several comments and protests filed earlier in the FERC proceeding concerning the ISO-NE and NEPOOL joint proposal to eliminate the Minimum Offer Price Rule (MOPR) (Docket No. ER22-1528-000). NEPGA first recounts the diverse set of stakeholders who, like NEPGA, filed comments in support, including Shell (a major offshore wind developer), Advanced Energy Economy, and the External and Internal Market Monitors. NEPGA also explains that the New England States Committee on Electricity filed comments explicitly not opposing the proposal. NEPGA also replies to a handful of other party arguments, challenging claims that the proposal will harm owners/developers of offshore wind resources or that it will impose significant incremental costs on consumers.
