FERC-725G4, Mandatory Reliability Standards: Reliability Standard PRC-010-2 (Undervoltage Load Shedding)

OMB 1902-0282

OMB 1902-0282

On February 6, 2015, NERC filed a petition seeking approval of Reliability Standard PRC-010-1 (Undervoltage Load Shedding), a revised definition of Undervoltage Load Shedding Program (UVLS Program) for inclusion in the NERC Glossary, and the associated violation risk factors, violation severity levels, effective date and implementation plan. NERC also proposed the retirement of four PRC Reliability Standards. NERC stated that the purpose of Reliability Standard PRC-010-1 is to “establish an integrated and coordinated approach to the design, evaluation, and reliable operation of Undervoltage Load Shedding Programs” as directed by the Commission in Order No. 693. On 11/19/2015, the Commission issued a Final Rule in Docket Nos. RM15-7-000, RM15-12-000, and RM15-13-000 which approved the revision of Reliability Standard PRC-010-1 into Reliability Standard PRC-010-2. FERC-725G4 information collection is a “temporary” collection. It is “temporary” in the sense that it allowed Commission staff to obtain clearance on requirements intended for FERC-725G (OMB Control No. 1902-0252) while that collection was already under OMB review for other unrelated Commission activities. As such, it has always been Commission staff’s intent to eventually return those requirements to the correct place in the Commission’s burden inventory, namely the FERC-725G. This consolidated supporting statement covers reporting and recordkeeping requirements currently in: 1. FERC-725G (Mandatory Reliability Standards for the Bulk-Power System (BPS): PRC Reliability Standards), 2. FERC-725G1 ((Order in RD14-14) Reliability Standards for the Bulk Power System: Reliability Standard PRC-004-5(i)) and 3. FERC-725G4 ((Final Rule in RM15-7, RM15-12, & RM15-13) Mandatory Reliability Standards: Reliability Standard PRC-010-1 (Undervoltage Load Shedding)). We are making the following changes : • transferring the reporting and record-keeping requirements currently in FERC-725G1 (from Reliability Standard PRC-004-5(i)) and in FERC-725G4 (Rel. Std. PRC-010-2) into the FERC-725G information collection, which is being renewed for 3 years • temporarily renewing the FERC-725G1 and FERC-725G4 information collections, only to avoid a lapse in approval for these requirements until OMB issues its decision on the consolidated FERC-725G. After OMB approval of the consolidated FERC-725G information collection, Commission staff plans to submit a request to discontinue the independent FERC-725G1 and FERC-725G4 information collection to do away with the intentional temporary duplication of burden.
