The Western Interconnection Regional Advisory Body (WIRAB) submitted advice to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) on its Request for Supplemental Comments in the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NOPR) on Essential Reliability Services and the Evolving Bulk-Power System – Primary Frequency Response (Docket No.: RM16-6). In the Request for Supplemental Comments on the NOPR, FERC sought supplemental comments related to whether and when electric storage resources should be required to provide primary frequency response, and the costs associated with primary frequency response capabilities from small generating facilities. WIRAB’s advice is aligned with its previous advice to FERC on the need for this rulemaking.
