NERC Files Petition for Approval of Revisions to the Definition of “Bulk Electric System” and Request for Expedited Action

On December 13, 2013, in Dockets RM12-6 and RM12-7, NERC submitted a petition for approval of proposed revisions completed in Phase 2 of Project 2010-17 to the definition of the term “Bulk Electric System” in the NERC Glossary of Terms Used in Reliability Standards. NERC requests that the Commission approve the proposed BES Definition and find that the proposed BES Definition is just, reasonable, not unduly discriminatory or preferential, and in the public interest. NERC also requests approval of the associated implementation plan, and expedited Commission action to the extent necessary for the Commission to issue an order on the proposed BES Definition by no later than March 31, 2014.
