NERC Submits Comments on NOPR Regarding Revisions to the LGIA and SGIA

On January 24, 2017, in Docket No. RM16-6-000, NERC submitted comments on the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NOPR) regarding proposed revisions to the Commission’s rules and regulations on primary frequency response.  NERC commented that revisions to the pro forma Large Generator Interconnection Agreement (LGIA) and pro forma Small Generator Interconnection Agreement (SGIA) to support primary frequency response capability would be consistent with NERC reliability assessments.  However, NERC stated that it is still too soon for it to determine whether it is necessary or appropriate to revise Reliability Standards to impose primary frequency response requirements on existing generation resources. NERC is continuing to examine frequency response issues closely and is on schedule to address the adequacy of primary frequency response resources and potential enhancements to Reliability Standards by no later than the July 1, 2018 deadline for the informational filing on NERC Reliability Standard BAL- 003-1.1, Frequency Response and Frequency Bias Setting.
