As announced in the “Notice of Technical Conference” issued on January 28, 2010, a technical conference will be held on March 3, 2010, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. (EST) in the Commission Meeting Room at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street, NE., Washington, DC 20426. The conference will be open for the public to attend and advance registration is not required.

The technical conference will focus on the mechanics of how to prepare an initial electric public utility market-based rate application and subsequent filings (including triennial market power reviews and change in status filings), as well as the requirement to submit Electric Quarterly Reports to the Commission once a seller has received market-based rate authorization. At the technical conference staff will also address the most frequently-asked questions that arise on electric market-based rate filings, the most common errors that are made in such filings, and highlight what tools are currently available to sellers in order to simplify the market-based rate application process as well as the preparation of subsequent required filings. The agenda for this conference is attached.
