Today’s LiveWire Spotlight looks at FAC-013-2, which will govern the derivation, verification, and communication of Transfer Capabilities in the one-to-five year planning horizon. It combines FAC-012-1 and FAC-013-1 into a single standard, integrating all requirements for a Transfer Capability methodology and its implementation.

FAC-013-2 will take effect in the U.S. on 4/1/2013. All PCs must have a compliant Transfer Capability methodology in place on that date and have distributed it to neighboring PCs and all TPs in their planning footprint.
