For Reliability Standards MOD–026–1 and MOD–027–1, the Commission estimates that a subset of the small generator owner entities will incur compliance and paperwork/record keeping costs of $198,176 ($9,008 per generator owner).106 This will result in a per entity compliance and paperwork/ record-keeping cost for the subset of generator owners complying with MOD–026–1 and MOD–027–1 of $22,380 107 and the remaining small generator owners who only have to comply with PRC–019–1, PRC–024–1 and MOD–025–1 incurring a $13,372 cost per entity, as previously described. Additionally, small transmission planner entities will incur compliance and paperwork/record keeping costs 108 totaling $49,392 ($1,176 per transmission planner) 109 to comply with MOD–026–1 and MOD–027–1. 71. The Commission does not consider the estimated costs per small entity to have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. Accordingly, the Commission certifies that this Final Rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. sroberts on DSK5SPTVN1PROD with RULES VII.
