Who is FERC?

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, or FERC, is the federal agency that grants authority to private interests to dam public waterways and use those impoundments for hydroelectric generation. Entergy first obtained a license in 1923. FERC regulates Electric, Hydro, Gas and Oil markets. For more information check out their website http://www.ferc.gov.
