Today’s LiveWire Spotlight looks at NERC’s report on the retirement of the Load Serving Entity function. The study concludes that LSE de-registration has had no discernable impact on the accuracy of system studies using the approach instructed by FERC

FERC is not likely to contest the report’s findings that LSE de-registrations do not affect the BA/TOP’s ability to acquire the load data they need for next-day analysis. LSEs will continue to be subject to the NAESB standards, but not to NERC standards.
