FERC Affirms and Clarifies PURPA Final Rule

On November 19, 2020, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) affirmed Order No. 872, the final rule addressing changes in the nation’s energy markets by revising regulations regarding the Public Utility Regulatory Policies Act (PURPA).


The action dismissed arguments raised on rehearing and also provided clarifications to the final rule. The clarifications related to aspects of states’ use of variable energy rates, recertification circumstances, and nondiscriminatory access to markets.
