FERC Issues Order 763 Approving Load Shedding Standards PRC-006-1 and EOP-003-2

On May 7, 2012, in Docket No. RM11-20-000, FERC issued Order No. 763, which approved, with modifications, NERC’s March 31, 2011 petition for Reliability Standards PRC-006-1 (Automatic Underfrequency Load Shedding) and EOP-003-2 (Load Shedding Plans).  FERC’s modifications required, among other things, clarification of NERC’s intent regarding the required timeframe for implementing corrections under PRC-006-1, which FERC believed was not addressed well enough in NERC’s response to the NOPR.  To view the order, click here.
