NERC Files Informational Filing on BES Definition Exceptions

On June 3, 2013, in Docket Nos. RM12-6 and RM12-7, NERC submitted an Informational Filing regarding how a list of facilities and elements for which Exceptions have been granted, and those for which an entity has made a self-determined exclusion, will be maintained. The initial determination of the Bulk Electric System (“BES”) Elements involved the Registered Entities application of the definition to the respective Elements. The Exception Process then was used to determine whether Element(s) may be included or excluded consistent with reliability of the overall BES. The filing also identifies how information will be made available to the Commission, Regional Entities, and to other interested persons.
