The topic of today’s LiveWire Spotlight article is FERC’s Order 762 Data Request, which was initiated in response to the Commission’s rejection of TPL-002-0b and TPL-001-2 on the basis that they allow the planned shedding of load under single contingencies. Although this project applies mostly to Planning Coordinators and Transmission Planners, the order calls for the input of BPS owners, users, and operators as well.

The proposed data request has been posted on the NERC website for industry stakeholder review. Clients have until July 9, 2012 to return comments to NERC.
