FERC delays quarterly reporting by utilities until new filing system is ready

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has delayed indefinitely a requirement that public power and other non-jurisdictional utilities with annual wholesale sales of more than 4 million megawatt-hours file electric quarterly reports on certain wholesale sales. In an Oct. 10 order delaying the Oct. 31 filing requirement, the commission said all utilities (both jurisdictional and nonjurisdictional) subject to the reporting rule are not to file their reports for the third quarter of 2013 until a new web-based approach for filing the reports is available.

The commission said it will issue a notice when the new web-based approach is available and provide the new deadline for filing the reports for the third quarter of 2013. 

The commission last year announced that it would adopt a web-based system for utilities to file the quarterly reports because technology changes were rendering its software filing system "outmoded, ineffective, and unsustainable."
