The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's new grid-connection rules apparently contain mistakes that would require clean-energy providers to overpay for plugging into America's transmission network, according to the American Wind Energy Association. As written, the rules would effectively exempt conventional energy producers from paying for integration costs, leaving wind and other renewable-energy firms to shoulder more than their fair share. "We hope this was a mistake. Mistakes like this can be fixed before proposed rules turn into final rules," AWEA said in a statement.
