FERC Issues Order Requesting Additional Information Regarding Wisconsin Public Service Corporation NOP

On May 29, 2009, FERC issued an order on the Notice of Penalty (NOP) submitted by NERC on May 1, 2009, regarding a zero dollar penalty that Midwest Reliability Organization (MRO) assessed to Wisconsin Public Service Corporation (WPSC) for self-certified violations of Reliability Standard PRC-005-1.  Specifically, the Commission determined that the NOP does not provide sufficient information on several issues pertinent to the Commission’s consideration.  Because the penalty would have been affirmed by operation of law in the absence of Commission action within thirty days of the NOP’s submission, the Commission extended the time-period for consideration of the WPSC NOP and directed NERC and MRO to file responses to the data requests contained in the order.  To read the Commission’s order, click here.
