Meg advises and represents municipally-owned utilities across the nation as a sought-after legal counsel on Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) matters.
Meg counsels her clients on a broad range of regulatory and commercial issues relating to the energy sector. Focusing her practice on energy market policy and design and on transmission access and rates, Meg is active in policy development matters arising from the California Independent System Operator Corporations' wholesale market rules and works with her clients to understand and shape outcomes as the California markets expand to include participants from other states in the West. In connection with this work, Meg advocates for her clients in complex stakeholder initiatives at the California ISO and in proceedings before the FERC. Additionally, she closely monitors emerging developments related to distributed energy resources, the changing resource mix, and integration of energy storage.
Drawing on her in-depth knowledge of transmission rates, rate design, and access rules, Meg guides her clients through the complex landscape of transmission and interconnection policies and requirements. She also works with her municipal utility clients to identify, evaluate and resolve issues relating to transmission rates and access.
Meg also advises and advocates for clients in matters relating to compliance with federally-mandated electric reliability standards and other aspects of the Federal Power Act and the Public Utility Regulatory Policies Act of 1978.
In addition to her work with utility clients, Meg works with large power consumers, providing advice concerning power supply transactions, including long-term power purchase arrangements.
