Today’s LiveWire Spotlight looks at the proposed change to NERC’s Rules of Procedure – establishing a “Consolidated Hearing Process” which Regional Entities may use in lieu of their own.

NERC’s proposed revisions to their Rules of Procedure have been posted for a 45-day review. Comments on the Frequency Response update must be emailed to NERC at ROPcomments@nerc.net by September 9, 2016.
