Today’s LiveWire Spotlight looks at FERC’s Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NOPR) to approve the retirement of 74 NERC requirements identified by the industry as redundant, administrative in nature, or provide little reliability benefit.  Three other requirements retirements may be denied – FAC-008-3 R7/R8 and VAR-001-5 R2 – unless industry stakeholders can provide more justification for them.

FERC’s proposal to approve the Standards Efficiency recommendations has been posted for a 60-day public review.  Clients have until April 6, 2020 to submit comments regarding those which may be denied by the Commission if their concerns are not addressed.
