On November 28, 2016, in Docket No. RM16-13-000, NERC submitted comments on the FERC Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NOPR) to approve its petition on April 20, 2016, as supplemented on June 14, 2016, for two proposed Reliability Standards: BAL-005-1 (Balancing Authority Control) and FAC-001-3 (Facility Interconnection Requirements) and the retirement of Reliability Standard BAL-006-2 (Inadvertent Interchange).  NERC’s comments also provided additional information regarding retirement of currently-effective Requirement R15 within BAL-005-0.2b.  NERC believes its proposals will enhance reliability and improve calculation of Reporting Area Control Error (ACE).
