FERC Issues Order Approving Modified NUC Reliability Standard


January 21, 2010

On January 21, 2010, FERC issued an order approving a modified Nuclear Plant Interface Coordination (NUC) Reliability Standard, NUC-001-2, that was filed by NERC to address FERC’s directives set forth in Order No. 716 approving the initial version of the NUC standard.  The revisions approved by FERC: (1) clarify the phrase “coping times”; and (2) ensure that integrated utilities document the compliance procedures that are to be performed by separate business units.  To view the order, click here.
