Applications and hearings

Participation & Lands

Before a company can build a federally regulated pipeline, power line, or offshore renewable energy project, it must first apply to the CER. We review and assess proposed projects, including potential impacts to people, property, and the environment, as well as examine a company’s engagement activities. The CER’s Commission holds public hearings for projects that require a certificate, and other projects when appropriate.
