Draft Comments Supporting WIRES’ FERC Petition

July 19, 2013

To: State Representatives

From: Larry Pearce, Executive Director

Subject: Draft Comments Supporting WIRES’ FERC Petition

Attached is a draft of my comments to be submitted to FERC in support of WIRES’ petition asking to open a docket regarding national transmission development.

WIRES’s petition asks FERC to open a docket so it can examine national transmission development in more detail. The draft comments are attached. The comments take the high road, pointing out that transmission investment is critical for development of renewable energy resources in the states — a position that the Coalition strongly supports.

Both the WIRES petition and my draft comments are attached. Please send me any revisions and comments by close of business on Monday, July 22.

Thanks. Have a good weekend.
