Today’s LiveWire Spotlight looks at FERC Docket RM14-8-000, which publicly states their intention to approve PRC-005-3. The Commission has found that PRC-005-3 meets the intent of FERC Order 758, which directed NERC to develop requirements governing recloser maintenance activities and intervals – even though the device function is normally considered a control, not a protective, concern.

FERC Docket RM14-8-000 is posted for public review. Clients have until 9/22/14 to submit their comments to the Commission’s NOPR to accept PRC-005-3 and the follow up actions that may result from it.
