Eric Christensen to Speak at Strafford's Webinar on PURPA Rules

Beveridge & Diamond Principal Eric Christensen (Seattle) will speak at Stafford's webinar entitled, "PURPA Rules: FERC Revisions Regarding QF Power Sales, Requirements for Utilities, QF Certification, State Authority." The webinar will provide energy counsel with an in-depth analysis of FERC's recent, expansive revisions to its PURPA regulations and the appeal of that rule in the Ninth Circuit. The panel will discuss critical aspects of the revised rules to encourage the development of qualifying small power production facilities and cogeneration facilities (QFs), requirements for electric utilities, state authority for energy rates in QF power sales contracts, and modification of the "one-mile rule." The panel will also discuss changes to a utility's obligation to purchase QF output, QF certifications, and other vital provisions.

CLE credit will be available in some jurisdictions.
