Supreme Court to review U.S. electricity market efficiency rule

Yahoo! National News - 5 hours 15 min ago

Obama speaks about charges against Baltimore police during a meeting in WashingtonBy Lawrence Hurley WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court agreed on Monday to review the legality of an Obama administration regulation aimed at encouraging efficiency in the electricity market by having electrical grid operators pay users to reduce consumption at peak times. The court said it will hear an appeal filed by the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission seeking to reverse a May 2014 ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit that threw out the rule. The regulation, aimed at improving grid reliability and encouraging clean energy, remains in effect as the litigation continues. FERC chairman Norman Bay said in a statement that the program is "important to the nation's competitive wholesale electricity markets and reliable electric service." The regulation concerns what FERC calls "demand-response," which is when, in an attempt to manage demand for electricity, regional electrical grid operators agree to pay electricity users to cut consumption at peak times.

By Lawrence Hurley WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday ruled against a Massachusetts man battling his mortgage lender over a bankruptcy plan in a case in which the Obama administration and even Bank of America Corp had backed the homeowner. On a 9-0 vote, the court said Louis Bullard, who owes community bank Blue Hills Bancorp Inc $387,000 for the mortgage on a property in the town of Randolph, cannot appeal a bankruptcy judge's rejection of his proposed bankruptcy plan. Blue Hills, formerly known as Hyde Park Savings Bank, had no support from the business community.
