FERC Issues NOPR on ERO Performance Assessments

On January 19, 2021, in Docket No. RM21-12-000, FERC issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NOPR) regarding revisions to regulations on Electric Reliability Organization (ERO) Performance Assessments. The NOPR requires EROs to submit assessments of its performance every three years instead of the current five-year requirement. The NOPR would also add a requirement for EROs to include in performance assessments a detailed discussion of any areas of the ERO’s responsibilities and activities, or a Regional Entity’s delegated functions, beyond those required by regulations. The NOPR also would formalize the method for EROs and Regional Entities to receive and respond to recommendations by the users, owners, and operators of the Bulk-Power System (BPS), and other interested parties for improvement of the Electric Reliability Organization’s operations, activities, oversight and procedures.
