"We commend Secretary Perry and the Department of Energy for recognising the importance of a reliable, resilient electric grid for American families and our nation's economy.  Correcting the faulty market conditions and keeping essential baseload generating plants operating will help ensure customers continue to receive safe, reliable and affordable supplies of electricity while maintaining the security of the electricity grid.  We look forward to final action by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) as soon as possible."
