Today’s LiveWire Spotlight evaluates the progress of NERC’s initiative specifically directed at the owners/operators of dispersed renewable resources (i.e.; solar arrays, wind farms). Most recently, that project team has revised White Paper that provides basis used to identify the standards addressed by Project 2014-01, and introduces PRC-005-5, which limits the scope of the Protection System maintenance requirements

The initial drafts of PRC-005-5 and the modified dispersed generation White Paper are available for review. Comments on the White Paper are due by 1/20/15 – Clients must provide their feedback and vote on PRC-005-5 two days later.
