3 FERC ATC NOPR ● Issue Spotting: MOD  “Remove” MOD R2.7  Eliminate protection of Existing Path ratings  69 “Existing Rating” Paths in WECC oPath Rating Catalogue  Require re-rating  Changes all contracts and models upon which the Existing Path ratings are predicated  Compliance in “one year” questionable  Need to respond  WECC and multiple entities! 3

4 FERC ATC NOPR ● Issue Spotting: “Mission Creep”  Make Implementation Documents available to broader range of entities  “Mission Creep”  Using NAESB Business Practices oFERC has no jurisdiction over “non-jurisdictionals”  Using Standards oFERC can sweep in “non-jurisdictionals”  Slippery slope  Infusing non-reliability issues into reliability standards 4

7 FERC ATC NOPR ● Informational  VSL and VRF will be filed later  Process under review at NERC  Can’t be lower than before drafting  Must be consistently applied  Based on a single violation and not on a cumulative number of violations 7

8 FERC ATC NOPR ● Informational  Other MODs and FAC  NERC / FERC agree oRetire MODs 1-9; Changes top oOutside scope of the NERC ATC Drafting Team oMore work to come  NERC / FERC disagree oFERC says polish FAC-12 oKeep FAC -13  MODs are “operational” (through 13 months)  FACs are “planning” (14 months and beyond) 8
