Today’s LiveWire Spotlight concerns FERC Order 773-A, which responds to clarification requests and challenges made to the updated definition of the Bulk Electric System. In it, the Commission dismisses all challenges that dispute their legal authority to create a bright line at 100 kV

The updated Definition of the Bulk Electric System takes effect on July 1, 2013 in the US. Clients who have facilities newly identified as part of the BES will have 24 months beyond that date to fully comply with all applicable Reliability Standards.
