Instructions for submitting documents to the FERC
(Skip this step if you already have a User Name and Password)
From the Welcome Screen, select "New Account."
At the Contact Information Screen, fill in the First Name, Middle Initial, and Last Name. Continue to fill in all bolded fields: these fields are required. Click on "Submit."
Specify a User Name & Password. The user name and password are case sensitive. Reenter the password for verification. Click on "Login."
Enter your login ID and Password. The user name and password are case sensitive.
Select the filing type: Click on the one selection that best signifies your submission. If you are intervening, you must select one of the entries for that category, even if you include comments and/or a protest in your submission.
Specify the signer of the document and the signer's organization. The default entries are based on your User Name profile. To change the defaults, enter the appropriate search criteria to select the correct names from FERC's existing list of filers. Click on the down arrow next to box. Click on the correct selection from the drop down list for each entry.
If you find the correct entries, click on "Next".
If you do not find the correct signer and address, click on "Create a New Contact".
If you do not find the correct organization, enter it in the organization box at the bottom of the screen and click on "Submit".
Specify the Organization on whose behalf you are filing. Use the process described in the previous step to change the default entry. You may add a contact name for this organization.
Enter Docket Number: Key in the Docket number, including the sub-docket. Click on “Add Docket to List.” Repeat if you need to add additional dockets. You can copy/paste multiple docket numbers in the large box if you have them in a columnar list (for example, in a Word document). Be sure that all docket numbers match those listed in the document you are submitting.
Click on "Continue" when you have added all dockets that apply to your submission.
Review the default description of your filing and add details to the description as necessary. If your submission is one that requires a new docket number, the term “NEW DOCKET” will appear in the description. Do not delete that term. The FERC dockets staff will assign a new docket number and it will appear in the Notice of Acceptance e-mail. Similarly, the Dockets staff will assign a new subdocket number if one is required.
Your document may consist of one to five files. Click on "Browse" to locate and select the first file to submit. When you locate the desired file in the Choose File box, click on "Open." The path and file name will appear in the Select File field. You can enter a brief description of the file; if you do not enter a description, the field defaults to the file name.
You may review the file (click on Review and it will open in the native format) to double-check that it is the correct file.
Click on Attach to add the file to the file submission list. Repeat the file selection, review, and attach steps if you have other files to include in your submission. When you have selected and attached all files, you may reorder them if necessary. The files will be listed (and a PDF file will be created) with the files in the order of submission.
If the file list and order are correct, click on "Submit Files". You will receive an on-screen acknowledgment as soon as we receive the filing. On the acknowledgment screen, you MUST click on "Done" to complete the submission process; click on "Cancel" if you need to correct or withdraw your submission.
