FERC in $2.5-mln settlement with Gila River over CA actions
WASHINGTON Nov 19 (Reuters) - The U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) on Monday said it approved a settlement with Gila River Power LLC for manipulation of power markets in California in 2009 and 2010.
The settlement calls for Gila River, a subsidiary of Entegra Power Group LLC, to pay a fine of $2.5 million and disgorge unjust profits of $911,553 plus interest.
FERC said the agreement marked the first time that a market participant has admitted to a violation of FERC's anti-manipulation rule in an energy trading case.
