WIRAB submitted advice to FERC on its Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NOPR) on proposed amendments to the Commission’s regulations on the Electric Reliability Organization’s (ERO) performance assessment. The advice supports FERC’s regulation revisions to:
- Increase the regularity of reviews from every five years to a three-year cycle.
- Allow for the opportunity to identify information requests before the ERO submits its performance assessment.
- Formalize a method for public comment on the ERO and Regional Entities’ performance to identify areas of improvement of the ERO operations, activities, oversight, and procedures.
