FERC Issues NOPR on Interchange Scheduling and Coordination Reliability Standards

On June 18, 2009, FERC issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NOPR) in which it proposes to approve three updated Interchange Scheduling and Coordination (INT) Reliability Standards developed by NERC.  The proposed INT Reliability Standards specify times for entities in the Western Interconnection to review and response to requests for interchange service, specifically, on-time requests for service and requests for emergency interchange and reliability adjustment interchange service.  In addition, the revisions set forth appropriate response times for all requests for on-time, emergency and reliability adjustment interchange service.  Comments on the INT Reliability Standards NOPR are due on 30 days after publication in the Federal Register.  To view FERC’s NOPR, click here.
