NERC and ReliabilityFirst Corporation Submit Proposed Regional Reliability Standard BAL-502-RF-03

On September 7, 2017, in Docket No. RD17-8-000, NERC and ReliabilityFirst Corporation submitted a joint petition for approval of proposed regional Reliability Standard BAL-502-RF-03 (Planning Resource Adequacy Analysis, Assessment and Documentation). Proposed regional Reliability Standard BAL-502-RF establishes common criteria for the analysis, assessment and documentation of Resource Adequacy for Load in the ReliabilityFirst region. In particular, the proposed standard addresses directives from FERC to (1) add time horizons applicable to the requirements and (2) consider including a requirement that the Planning Coordinators identify any gap between the needed amount of planning reserves and the documented projected planning reserves determined from the Resource Adequacy analysis. The NERC Board of Trustees adopted the proposed standard on August 10, 2017.
