Washington, D.C. — The Southeast has three FERC Order No. 1000 regional transmission planning entities: Southeast Regional Transmission Planning (SERTP); South Carolina Regional Transmission Planning (SCRTP); and Florida Reliability Coordinating Council (FRCC).

While these entities are regionally organized to ensure the reliability and security of the electricity grid in their respective areas, they are not organized markets under FERC Order No. 1000 and are not responsible for operating competitive wholesale electricity markets.

In May 2024, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) finalized its long-term regional transmission planning and cost allocation rule to strengthen the grid to meet future demand. How will the Southeast be impacted by the new rule?
