Earthjustice statement on the opportunity to secure healthier communities and environment and ensure just and reasonable rates for customers
Earthjustice served as co-counsel for the Natural Resources Defense Council in seeking Supreme Court review of the decision in collaboration with a coalition of conservation and consumer groups.
The following is a statement from Earthjustice Clean Energy Managing Attorney Jill Tauber:
“Today’s Supreme Court action is welcome news in the effort to secure a cleaner, more reliable and affordable electric grid. Demand response plays a central role in our nation’s electric power system, providing tremendous environmental, consumer and reliability benefits. At stake in this case is FERC’s ability to remove barriers to this vital clean energy resource in wholesale energy markets and fulfill its responsibility to ensure just and reasonable rates.”
