Curious if any mags out there have any experience with FERC...
Who has dealt with this agency? Good or bad? Looking at a study permit and have limited knowledge of renewable energy opportunities.

That's a complicated question (or series of questions). I've dealt with them on natural gas and in LNG. They're a large bureaucracy (duh) that publishes codes & standards and develops pricing, and so forth. So, I wouldn't expect a lot of slack if you're looking for that. If you get someone knowledgeable to talk to there, who can help you, that's a definite win.
I work in the renewable energy area, although I haven't been involved with FERC on that. But, what's a "study permit"?

Are you studying a startup coal fire or nuke plant?
I don't get the study permit part either, unless there is some regulatory measure they would have authority to oversee.

I have worked with FERC from the power company side. I worked for the environmental department of a Power Company going through a FERC re-licensing procedure for a hydro power dam."It's not that she said anything that wasn't true, it's that what she did say has almost no relation to the truth." - Rubicon
