Financial Transmission Rights

Financial Transmission Rights or FTRs allow market participants to offset potential losses (hedge) related to the price risk of delivering energy to the grid. FTRs are a financial contract entitling the FTR holder to a stream of revenues (or charges) based on the day-ahead hourly congestion price difference across an energy path.  Learn more about financial transmission rights at the Learning Center.
