The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has extended the deadline for filing electronic quarterly reports on transactions for the fourth quarter of 2013. In a Dec. 27 order, the commission extended the Jan. 31 deadline until a new web-based electronic filing system is available. The reporting requirement applies to public power utilities with a three-year rolling average of over 4 million megawatt-hours in wholesale electric sales. The commission said it will notify all filers when the web-based filing software is available and will also provide a new deadline for submitting reports for the third and fourth quarters of 2013.

The commission has scheduled a technical conference for Jan. 22 where staff will demonstrate the new filing system for the quarterly reports. The new system includes two options for filing the reports: one that will allow users to file through a web interface on the commission’s website, and a second that will allow users to file reports in an extensible mark-up language (EML) formatted file. FERC staff anticipates that the first filings under the new system (for reports for the third quarter of 2013) will be due sometime around March 1 through March 30. A free webcast of the conference will be available through
