Restructuring Today presents a brand-new web conference… Understanding Rights of First Refusal: Can They Survive FERC’s Actions? Tuesday, November 9, 2010, 2-3:30 p.m. EDT (11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. Pacific) REGISTER NOW YOUR PRESENTERS: Ali Amirali, Starwood Energy Group Gary Guy, Chief FERC Counsel, BGE NEW! Stephen Kozey, Vice President and General Counsel, Midwest ISO Sharon Segner, Director, Project Development, LS Power Sam Spencer (Moderator), Editor and Publisher, Restructuring Today The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) recently eliminated a PJM practice where utilities had the rights of first refusal (ROFR) to build planned transmission lines that went through its territory, even if a third party had already started developing the line. In spite of the fact that utilities have express concern about their loss of rights, and even filed for a rehearing, FERC is still thinking about broadening the elimination to all ISO/RTOs through its transmission NOPR. But because FERC understands there’s a significant lack of clarity on rights of first refusal, they’re taking a long hard look at its proposal. Several Midwest ISO transmission owners have already told FERC that they would consider leaving the market if it carried out the policy in their territory. The issue is also a concern in the California ISO’s revised transmission planning process. So what does all this mean for you? Find out how the elimination of ROFRs could change the future of the transmission business when you join Restructuring Today for its latest web conference “Understanding Rights of First Refusal: Can They Survive FERC’s Actions?” on Tuesday, November 9, 2010. Listen as our panel of experts offers its interpretation of how FERC is likely to act on this key issue. You’ll hear arguments on both sides of the debate and gain a better understanding of the implications for the future of ISOs and their transmission-owning members. Whether you work for a transmission-owning utility or non-utility transmission firm, you’re an ISO/RTO member, or a state and federal regulators—anyone with a vested interest in transmission rights, this is one web conference you can’t afford to miss so be sure to register today.

If FERC removes the rights across ISO/RTOs, what strategies will utilities need to build and own the transmission projects they want? How can non-utility transmission builders take advantage of the new landscape if FERC takes ROFRs away — or compete effectively for projects if ROFRs remain? What will replace the ROFR system if it goes away? Because the future of the green-power industry hinges on the rollout of new transmission projects, what are the implications for its survival? …and much more!
