On June 24, 2013, in Docket No. RM12-16, NERC submitted comments in response to FERC’s April 18, 2013 Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NOPR) regarding Generator Requirements at the Transmission Interface ("GOTO NOPR").  Specifically, the GOTO NOPR addressed modifications to four existing Reliability Standards, FAC -001-1 (Facility Connection Requirements), FAC -003-3 (Transmission Vegetation Management), PRC -004-2.1a (Analysis and Mitigation of Transmission and Generation Protection System Misoperations), and PRC -005-1.1b (Transmission and Generation Protection System Maintenance and Testing). 

In its comments, NERC clarifies the term “Generator Interconnection Facility,” and gives comments regarding individual assessments as requested in the GOTO NOPR.
