The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission should require the North American Energy Standards Board to revise a proposed business practices standard on modifying secondary network service reservations, APPA and the Florida Municipal Power Agency said. In Sept. 24 joint comments, they said the standard is confusing and "should be revised to ensure that it will not inadvertently limit network customers’ ability to modify either their secondary network service reservations or their actual use of the transmission capacity available to them under such reservations."

The standard should be revised to focus on a transmission provider’s release to other customers of a secondary network service reservation that the network customer has terminated, they said. Also, the commission "should emphasize that the standard must not in any way restrict a network customer from revising its tags (within whatever timing requirements apply to tagging changes) to reduce its scheduled use of a secondary network service reservation."
