Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., has urged the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to approve the California Independent System Operator’s proposed energy imbalance market. In a May 15 letter, he also urged the commission to approve the participation of NV Energy, Nevada’s largest utility, in the proposed market. The letter touts the benefits of an imbalance market and says the proposed market "has widespread support among regional stakeholders, Public Utility Commissioners, the Western Interstate Energy Board’s PUC-EIM Working Group, renewable energy advocacy groups, environmental organizations, electric power trade groups, and a host of private corporations, including major electric utilities in the region."
