My Faith is Shaken -Thursday, November 29, 2018
“What the Hell?” … That was what I muttered after I was finished reading FERC’s Order in answer to the La Paloma complaint (EL18 177-000) about the California market for “Resource Adequacy” (RA). The reaction was not to the decision itself, but rather to the very sloppy and dismissive way the text of the Order treated the record on file. I’m used to not always agreeing with the decisions of the Commission – even when I was on staff there. What is so disappointing are the omissions and the cursory treatment of the record. If one had the money, I contend that this could lead to a challenge in Federal Court on purely procedural grounds. Or is the Commission counting on the fact that parties will just accept their writ?
