APPA, LPPC ask FERC to clarify quarterly reporting requirements
Originally published October 24, 2012
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission should clarify that it will phase in quarterly reporting requirements for public power utilities after it replaces its software for filing the reports, APPA and the Large Public Power Council said in an Oct. 22 joint motion. They also urged the commission to hold a technical conference on the issue of reporting e-Tag identification data for each transaction, as requested by the Edison Electric Institute and Electric Power Supply Association.
The commission is replacing its software for electronic quarterly reports of wholesale sales by entities selling more than 4 million megawatt-hours of electricity annually. FERC should clarify that, if it has not completed the software revisions by May 31, 2013, it will phase in the requirements after it has revised the software, APPA and LPPC said.
A requirement to submit e-Tag data would place substantial burdens on quarterly report filers that would outweigh the value of the data to the commission, APPA and LPPC said. The commission should convene a technical conference to consider those burdens and ways to minimize them, they said.
