FERC Proposes Incentives for Cybersecurity Investments

On December 17, 2020, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NOPR) to consider incentives for voluntary cybersecurity investments.

The proposed incentives for utilities include a 200 basis-point adder to the rate of return on equity (ROE) and deferred cost recovery for certain expenses related to cybersecurity.

FERC proposed the cybersecurity-related incentives on the same day the U.S. Department of Energy confirmed its systems were breached in the SolarWinds hack.
