Is there an option to address potential financing challenges by adjusting the parameters that establish the capacity market demand curve, such as changes to the net cost of new entry (Net CONE) estimate? For example, Net CONE estimates could be adjusted by reducing the expected economic life of the reference unit used to establish Net CONE, increasing the reference unit’s cost of capital to reflect higher risks, or through changes to the shape of the demand curve. b. Many state polices related to electric generation (e.g., renewable portfolio standards) are specified in statute and include timelines (often decades into the future) that investors can use to estimate the timing, type, and quantity of state supported resources entering PJM’s markets and potential market impacts. To what extent does the transparency of such state polices mitigate or reduce these risks to merchant resources? c. Would a capacity market with a Targeted MOPR provide a sufficient incentive for capacity to enter the PJM market when needed to ensure resource adequacy? (20) What changes are needed to ensure PJM’s energy and ancillary services markets send appropriate price signals and ensure sufficient incentives for investment? (21) What is FERC’s responsibility toward states in the PJM region that have chosen a state policy of not subsidizing their preferred resources in light of the competitive capacity market? (22) How urgent is the need to reconcile PJM’s capacity market rules and state policies? Could PJM or the Commission adopt a phased approach with short-term and long-term solutions? For example, could shortterm actions include eliminating the Expanded MOPR and replacing it with a Targeted MOPR? What long-term solutions are needed, if any?
