(NPCC) jointly submitted a "Compliance Filing and Assessment of Bulk Electric System Definition Report " (BES Report Compliance Filing).  The BES Report Compliance Filing was submitted in compliance with the Commission’s December 18, 2008 Order in FERC Docket No. RC09-3-000, which directed NERC and the NPCC to submit a comprehensive list of BES facilities in the United States portion of the NPCC Region.  In addition, the December 18 Order sought additional information regarding the scope and comprehensiveness of the NPCC’s definition of BES in hopes that such information would assist the Commission’s understanding of this issue.  To read the BES Report Compliance Filing, click here.
