Court Decision Affirming Order No. 1000

“I am very pleased that the DC Circuit fully affirmed Order No. 1000. Our nation needs substantial investment in transmission infrastructure to adapt to changes in its resource mix and environmental policies. Order No. 1000 is critical to the Commission’s efforts to support efficient, competitive, and cost-effective transmission. I look forward to continuing our work on Order No. 1000 compliance and seeing the results of the regional and interregional processes.”
