We encourage you to share your thoughts as they relate to the topic being discussed. The views expressed in comments or in links posted by a commenter reflect those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the official views of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), the Chairman, the Commissioners or the federal government.

As such, neither FERC, the Chairman, the Commissioners, nor the federal government make any warranty, express or implied, as to the accuracy, completeness, usefulness, or reliability of the information posted by commenters on this site or endorse or recommend any specific product, process, or service referenced by commenters.

Submitting comments and other information is strictly voluntary. By doing so, you are allowing the information or comments you provide to be publically disclosed on this site.

We want to publish your comments, but we expect comments generally to be courteous. To that end, FERC has established the following policy in regard to the posting of comments, and we reserve the discretion not to post comments or remove posts that are inconsistent with our policy.

Therefore, it is our policy not to post comments that:

  • Contain obscene, indecent, or profane language;
  • Contain threats or defamatory statements;
  • Contain hate speech directed at race, color, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, ethnicity, age, religion, or disability;
  • Promote or endorse services or products; (Note that non-commercial links that are relevant to the topic or another comment are acceptable.)
  • Promote or endorse partisan political activity; or
  • Exhibit anti-competitive practices or other violations of law.


Copyrighted and other proprietary material should not be posted or submitted in any form unless permission to do so is clearly indicated. In posting his or her own comments or other work, a commenter grants FERC and anyone viewing the FERC Web site irrevocable permission to copy, distribute, make derivatives, display or perform the commenter's work publicly and free-of-charge.

Personal or private information should not be posted such as social security numbers, medical information, home addresses, and home telephone numbers.

Comments posted on Facebook, Twitter, or other social media outlets are not considered an official filing before the Commission or made part of the record. To make an official filing on a proceeding before the Commission, members of the public must follow Commission Rules of Practices and Procedure at 18 CFR 385.  Questions should be directed to ferconlinesupport@ferc.gov.

Reporters are asked to send questions to MediaDL rather than by submitting questions here as comments. It is our policy not to post reporter questions.

Guidance as to how FERC regards privacy issues can be found within the Privacy Policy. Please see eFiling and eComment for further guidance on how to electronically comment.

Thank you for taking the time to read this comment policy. We encourage your participation in our discussion and look forward to an active exchange of ideas.
