NERC Submits Comments on NOPR Regarding Grid Reliability and Resilience Pricing

On October 23, 2017, in Docket No. RM18-1-000, NERC submitted comments in response to the Department of Energy’s (DOE) proposed rule and the Commission’s request for comments on grid reliability and resilience pricing. NERC’s comments relate to NERC’s key findings and recommendations related to secure capacity and essential reliability services. Ultimately, NERC recommended that the Commission continue to pursue policy reform that recognizes the secure capacity and essential reliability service attributes currently and historically provided by coal and nuclear generation, incentivizes development of such reliability attributes in non-synchronous resources, such as wind and solar facilities, and promotes fuel assurance for natural gas-fired resources.
