Payment of Dividends From Funds Included in Capital Accounts
Document Number: 2014-06162
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-03-21
Agency: Department of Energy, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission
The Commission proposes, as a statement of policy, that section 305(a) of the Federal Power Act (FPA) should be interpreted as not prohibiting the payment of dividends from funds included in capital accounts by any public utility that has a market-based rate tariff on file with the Commission, does not have captive customers, and does not provide transmission or local distribution services. Because the payment of dividends from funds included in capital accounts by such public utilities does not appear to implicate the concerns underlying the enactment of FPA section 305(a), the Commission proposes this policy in order to eliminate a regulatory burden otherwise applicable under FPA section 305(a) to such public utilities.

Document Number: 2014-06044
Type: Rule

Agency: Department of Energy
Pursuant to section 133 of the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (EISA), DOE is finalizing a rule that revises regulations on the Alternative Fuel Transportation Program (AFTP or the Program). This final rule establishes regulations on the allocation of marketable credits for the acquisition of EISA-specified electric drive vehicles and for investments in qualified alternative fuel infrastructure, qualified alternative fuel non-road equipment, and relevant emerging technologies. DOE also is promulgating modifications to the exemption process and the Alternative Compliance option, as well as a number of technical and other revisions that will make the Program regulations clearer.
