Permitting/Regulatory Guidance - Guide/Handbook: A Guide to the FERC Electric Transmission Facilities Permit Process

Abstract
This guide walks interested parties through the permit process for electric transmission facilities. It provides a detailed background section that explains the different federal policies which govern electric transmission projects, noting that most projects are approved by states, though there are some exceptions where FERC has authority. Federal Power Plan requirements are described and the permit process is broken down and explained. Elements of this process include state review, initial consultation, pre-filing review process, and the application process. This guide also includes a Frequently-Asked Questions section, links to related documents, and relevant FERC contact information.
