In a Notice of Technical Conference issued September 17, 2004, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission announced that it would host a technical conference on Wednesday, October 13, 2004 to discuss infrastructure issues for the State of Connecticut and the surrounding region. The technical conference will be held in Room 2C of the Legislative Office Building, 300 Capitol Avenue, Hartford, Connecticut. The time for the technical conference has been changed. The technical conference was previously announced to begin at 10 a.m. and end at 3 p.m. The technical conference is now scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. (EST) and end at 4 p.m.

The goal of the technical conference is to provide a forum for discussion of issues affecting energy infrastructure in and around Connecticut. This discussion will take place between federal, state and regional leaders and industry representatives. The conference will explore proposals for new electric transmission, their impact on electric reliability for the region, implications for connectivity with the entire New England grid and its relation to neighboring regions, the costs of the proposals and possible allocation of those costs. The agenda for this meeting is included as Attachment A to this notice.

The conference is a technical discussion between policy leaders, which members of the public are welcome to attend. Registration is not required; however, in-person attendees are asked to register for the conference on-line by close of business on Monday, October 11, 2004 at http://www.ferc.gov/​whats-new/​registration/​infra-1013-form.asp.
