FERC Issues NOPR to Approve Reliability Standard TPL-007-2

On May 17, 2018, in Docket No. RM18-8-000, FERC issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NOPR) proposing to approve Reliability Standard TPL-007-2 (Transmission System Planned Performance for Geomagnetic Disturbance Events). Proposed Reliability Standard TPL-007-2 modifies currently-effective Reliability Standard TPL-007-1 by requiring applicable entities to: conduct supplemental geomagnetic disturbance event (GMD) vulnerability assessments and thermal impact assessments; obtain geomagnetically induced current and magnetometer data; and meet certain deadlines for the development and completion of tasks in corrective action plans.
