Commissioner Tony Clark Statement

Docket Nos. ER13-193-001, ER13-193-003, ER13-196-001, & ER13-196-002
Dissenting in Part on ISO-NE Order No. 1000 Rehearing
“I write separately to note my partial dissent in today’s order with respect to the Mobile-Sierra issue raised, for the same reasons more fully explained in my previous dissent in this proceeding.1
“On rehearing, the Commission again declines to provide the actual quantitative or granular analysis of public interest harm that is required to overcome the Mobile-Sierra protection previously granted. The result in the instant case is thus legally suspect. Moreover, the decision has the unfortunate side effect of calling into question the Commission’s commitment to upholding the regulatory certainty provided under our Mobile-Sierra decisions.
“Accordingly, I respectfully dissent in part.”
