Posting is targeted for around March 5, 2010. Note: –The Commission issued Order 713-B denying EPSA, NRG, and Constellation request for rehearing and clarification on NERC TLR Standards –The Commission issued RM10-9-000 Notice of Inquiry on the interplay between Reliability Standard IRO-006-4 (Reliability Coordination – Transmission Loading Relief) and the curtailment priorities set forth in the Commissions pro-forma open access transmission tariff; particularly sections 13.6 and 14.7.

A relief obligation would be issued to all parties contributing to the loading.

(Functional Specification is expected to be approved by the IDCWG by February 5, 2010.) WEQ BPS will establish methodology for assigning the GTL flows into the appropriate priority buckets (e.g., firm or non-firm) that will be uploaded to the IDC. The NERC ORS is looking at a 12-18 month parallel test to analyze the results of the IDC changes. The WEQ BPS is currently identifying the general categories of data that would be uploaded to the IDC. Upcoming BPS Meetings: –February 23-24, 2010 –March 17-18, 2010 –April 1, 2010 Unknown what impact RM10-9-000 may have on this Annual Plan item.
