PJM Tariff Revisions

Today, staff issued a deficiency letter in this proceeding. In future deliberations in this proceeding, I will of course consider the totality of the record, including all of the responses to staff’s deficiency letter. Nonetheless, I believe that this proceeding already contains sufficient information to permit the Commission to issue an order on the merits of PJM’s proposal in advance of the May 2015 Base Residual Auction. Markets provide the best prices for both buyers and sellers when participants know the market rules. Regardless of whether the Commission ultimately decides to accept or reject PJM’s capacity performance proposal, by failing to act, the Commission is creating market uncertainty on issues that need clarity now. For this reason, I believe that we should have acted today on the merits of PJM's filings. However, this five-member Commission can only move forward on an order when we have three votes for action.
