Today’s LiveWire Spotlight looks at the initial Draft of BAL-002-3, which was modified to close reliability gaps identified by FERC in Order 835. At that time, the Commission directed an update to the exemption given to Balancing Authorities to exceed the 15-minute Area Control Error recovery period during an Energy Emergency Alert.

The initial versions of BAL-002-3 and it supporting materials have been posted for a 45-day review period and concurrent ballot. Clients have until May 7, 2018 to provide comments back to the drafting team and return their votes on the standard.
