Today’s LiveWire Spotlight looks at FERC Docket RD18-7-000, which announces the Commission’s approval of BAL-002-3. The standard closes a reliability gap identified by FERC which could allow an energy deficient BA/RSG to rely on their neighbors indefinitely without proper RC oversight.

Within six months (4/1/2019 in the U.S.), BAs/RSGs must modify their energy emergency procedures in accordance with BAL-002-3. Afterwards, they must assure that the proper notification and ACE recovery plan submission occurs when the DCP criteria cannot be met.
