FERC Seeks Comments on Revisions to Electric Quarterly Report Requirements
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) is seeking comments on proposed revisions and clarifications to the Electric Quarterly Report (EQR) reporting requirements.
EQRs contain information about wholesale sales of energy and transmission made by public utilities and certain non-public utilities. EQRs help the Commission perform its regulatory functions and provide greater price transparency into wholesale markets for the Commission, the public, and industry. The proposals in this notice seek to provide for more accurate and consistent data in the EQR.
Today’s notice is seeking comments on the following proposals:
- To require transmission providers to report ancillary services transaction data;
- To require filers to submit in the EQR certain tariff-related information that they submit in the e-Tariff system;
- To require filers to submit time zone information in connection with transmission capacity reassignment transactions; and
- To clarify how filers should report booked out transactions.
Comments are due 60 days from the date today’s notice is published in the Federal Register.
