In its Notice of Inquiry (NOI) issued on January 21, 2010 (FERC Docket No. RM10-12-000), FERC seeks to promote price transparency in electricity markets through the expanded reporting requirement. Additionally, FERC requests comments on refinements to certain EQR fields for all entities that are required to file EQRs. A summary of these items follows.
