NERC Submits Answer to Protest to Proposed Regional Reliability Standards VAR-002-WECC-2 and VAR-501-WECC-2

On February 26, 2015, in Docket No. RD15-1, NERC and the Western Electric Coordinating Council (WECC) submitted a joint answer to Dominion’s protest to NERC’s petition seeking Commission approval of proposed Regional Reliability Standards VAR-002-WECC-2 and VAR-501-WECC-2. On December 15, 2014, NERC requested Commission approval of the proposed standards. Dominion filed its protest to that petition on January 15, 2015, expressing concerns that the proposed standard does not include a waiver or variance from equivalent generally applicable reliability standards.
