Meg serves as an advisor and Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) counsel to municipally-owned utilities around the country.
She is actively engaged in helping her clients achieve and maintain compliance with federally-mandated electric reliability standards. Meg's activities in this area include developing specialized training programs related to the standards, performing compliance reviews and assisting with audit preparation, and drafting internal policies, procedures and guidelines. Meg also provides guidance to clients involved in enforcement proceedings relating to reliability standards compliance.
Meg continues to be active in policy development matters arising from the California Independent System Operator Corporation's wholesale market rules. She has represented a number of municipal transmission customers and market participants in complex FERC proceedings and stakeholder processes. She also represents clients in FERC settlement negotiations and adjudications involving the transmission rates of the three largest California investor-owned utilities, and has counseled the firm's municipally-owned utilities transitioning to transmission owner status within the California Independent System Operator.
In addition to her regulatory work, Meg works closely with a number of firm clients that are large power consumers. She provides advice concerning transactions involving long-term power purchase arrangements and regularly assists clients with their review of power supply agreements.
