D.C. Circuit Grants Motion to Dismiss NRG Appeal of FERC TLR Standard Orders


July 28, 2010

On July 28, 2010, the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals issued an order granting FERC’s motion and dismissing the NRG Power Marketing and Louisiana Generating LLC’s petition for review of FERC orders 713, 713-A, and 713-B, which approved new versions of NERC Reliability Standard IRO-006 addressing Transmission Loading Relief (“TLR”) procedures.  The D.C. Circuit order dismissed the petition on the grounds, argued in FERC’s May 24, 2010 reply, that the challenged orders are “not ripe for review.”  To view the D.C. Circuit Order, click here.
