Prof. Calls For FERC To Subject Tech Companies, Non-Utilities With MBR To Greater Regulation

September 14,2017

Writing at, Gina S. Warren, a law professor, urges that as tech companies expand to electricity sales (noting Google and Apple's MBR authority), with the potential to sell energy with just one click, FERC needs to increase regulation of such non-utility sellers

Warren calls wholesale electricity sales a "public good" and writes that horizontal market power tests, which non-utilities will pass, do not account for the monopolies corporate and tech giants may build in other industries

"One way to potentially address this issue is for FERC to redefine its market power definition to include market power in any industry, regardless of whether it is a FERC-regulated industry," Warren writes (emphasis by Warren)
