The U.S. Supreme Court appears to be split on whether the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission could issue a rule resulting in consumers getting paid for using less power during high-demand periods.

This case really deals with the overlap of state programs on retail demand response and FERC programs on wholesale demand response. There's a real need for clarity here.”
