On November 20, 2014, in Docket No. RM-14-10, FERC issued a NOPR to approve Reliability Standard BAL-001-2, Real Power Balancing Control Performance.  NERC filed a petition for approval of the reliability standard, which is designed to ensure that system frequency is maintained within narrow bounds around a scheduled value, on April 2, 2014.  The NOPR also proposed that NERC submit an informational filing to address the reliability impacts from inadvertent interchange and unscheduled power flows.  Comments on the NOPR will be due 60 days after its publication in the Federal Register.
