FERC Issues Notice of Inquiry Regarding Transmission Loading Relief Standard


January 21, 2010

On January 21, 2010, FERC issued a Notice of Inquiry in Docket No. RM10-9-000 requesting comment from the industry regarding the relationship between the transmission loading relief (TLR) requirements of Reliability Standard IRO-006-4 and curtailment priorities in the FERC-approved pro forma Open Access Transmission Tariff (OATT).  FERC is seeking comments on whether Reliability Standard IRO-006-4 directs a reliability coordinator to curtail a firm interchange transaction crossing over a constrained flowgate prior to curtailing a non-firm native network load transaction across the same flowgate.  To view the Notice of Inquiry, click here.
