On April 18, 2013, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission ("FERC") issued an order accepting the Order No. 1000 compliance filing of the New York Independent System Operator, Inc., and the New York Transmission Owners, subject to a further compliance filing due within 120 days of the order. While FERC found aspects of the NYISO and NYTO filing to be compliant with Order No. 1000's transmission planning process requirements, certain details of the filing require further explanation or modification. Linked hereto is a memorandum summarizing the order.
