Pursuant to the section regarding Electric Reliability of the Federal Power Act, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Commission) proposes to approve Reliability Standard CIP-014-1 (Physical Security). The North American Electric Reliability Corporation, the Commission-certified Electric Reliability Organization, submitted the proposed Reliability Standard for Commission approval in response to a Commission order issued on March 7, 2014. The purpose of proposed Reliability Standard CIP-014-1 is to enhance physical security measures for the most critical Bulk-Power System facilities and thereby lessen the overall vulnerability of the Bulk-Power System against physical attacks. The Commission proposes to approve Reliability Standard CIP-014-1. In addition, the Commission proposes to direct NERC to develop two modifications to the physical security Reliability Standard and seeks comment on other issues.

The Commission issues this policy statement to provide guidance that the Federal Power Act (FPA) should be interpreted as not prohibiting the payment of dividends from funds included in capital account by any public utility that has a market-based rate tariff on file with the Commission, does not have captive customers, and does not provide transmission or local distribution services. The Commission has concluded that the payment of dividends from funds included in capital account by such public utilities does not implicate the concerns underlying the enactment of the provision of the FPA that prohibits the payment of dividends from funds included in capital account. Thus, it is unnecessary for any public utility that meets the criteria identified in this policy statement to file a petition for declaratory order in order to seek assurances that dividends paid from capital account are not unlawful under this provision of the FPA.
