FERC adopted an order on rehearing and compliance regarding a PJM plan to implement a revised minimum offer price rule (MOPR) in the capacity market

A written order was not immediately issued

During the Commission meeting, FERC Commissioner Richard Glick warned that, in addressing concerns about the MOPR's impact on default service auctions (background here), a footnote in FERC's new order suggests that default service auctions that take into account state RPS targets would be subject to the MOPR, notwithstanding the order's premise that non-discriminatory or fuel-neutral SOS auctions would not be subject to the MOPR

In the compliance filing addressed by FERC's order PJM had proposed to complete all pre-auction activities and open the BRA for the 2022/2023 Delivery Year within six and a half months after the date of the Commission’s acceptance of PJM’s compliance filing.

However, while FERC adopted an order on rehearing and compliance, certain pre-auction activities cannot yet begin due to a still pending FERC decision on the PJM reserves market, which impacts the default offer price floor in the capacity auction.

Docket No. EL16-49 et al.
