WASHINGTON, D.C., Friday, Sept. 29, 2017 — The following is a statement from Amy Farrell, Senior Vice President, Government and Public Affairs, for the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) on the U.S. Department of Energys proposed rulemaking for the grid resiliency pricing rule:


"We worry todays proposal would upend competitive markets that save consumers billions of dollars a year. The best way to guarantee a resilient and reliable electric grid is through market-based compensation for performance, not guaranteed payments for some, based on a government-prescribed definition. We look forward to participating in the process as FERC begins to consider the proposed rule." - Amy Farrell, Senior Vice President, Government and Public Affairs, American Wind Energy Association.
