FERC–725T [Mandatory Reliability Standards for the Bulk-Power System: TRE Reliability Standards] OMB Control No.: 1902–0273. Abstract: Reliability Standard BAL– 001–TRE–01 applies to entities registered as Generator Owners (GOs), Generator Operators (GOPs), and Balancing Authorities (BAs) within the Texas Reliability Entity region. Regional Reliability Standard BAL– 001–TRE–01 is more comprehensive than the existing continent-wide Reliability Standards addressing frequency response, BAL–001–0.1a and BAL–003–0.1b in that the regional standard includes additional requirements and applies to generator owners and generator operators as well as balancing authorities. The expanded applicability of the regional Reliability Standard, thus, increases the reporting burden for entities that operate within the ERCOT 1 Interconnection. The information collection requirements entail the setting or configuration of the Control System software, identification and recording of events, data retention, and submitting frequency measurable events to the compliance enforcement authority (Regional Entity or NERC). Submitting frequency measurable events. As per Requirement R1, the BA has to identify and post information regarding Frequency Measurable Events (FME). Further, the BA has to calculate and report to the Compliance Enforcement Authority data related to Primary Frequency Response (PFR) performance of each generating unit/ generating facility. Data retention. The BA, GO, and GOP shall keep data or evidence to show compliance, as identified below, unless directed by its Compliance Enforcement Authority to retain specific evidence for a longer period of time as part of an investigation. Compliance audits are generally about three years apart. • The BA shall retain a list of identified Frequency Measurable Events and shall retain FME information since its last compliance audit for Requirement R1, Measure M1. • The BA shall retain all monthly PFR performance reports since its last compliance audit for Requirement R2, Measure M2. • The BA shall retain all annual Interconnection minimum Frequency Response calculations, and related methodology and criteria documents, relating to time periods since its last compliance audit for Requirement R3, Measure M3. • The BA shall retain all data and calculations relating to the Interconnection’s Frequency Response, and all evidence of actions taken to increase the Interconnection’s Frequency Response, since its last compliance audit for Requirements R4 and R5, Measures M4 and M5. • Each GOP shall retain evidence since its last compliance audit for Requirement R8, Measure M8. • Each GO shall retain evidence since its last compliance audit for Requirements R6, R7, R9 and R10, Measures M6, M7, M9 and M10. Modification to Governor Controller Setting/Configuration (to be removed from the FERC–725T information collection). This category of response burden is being removed from FERC– 725T. The ‘‘Modification to Governor Controller Setting/Configuration’’ category was a one-time requirement related to implementation of the BAL– 001–TRE–01 Reliability Standard. Each GO was required to set its governor settings according to Requirement R6. In order to modify its settings, the GO had to generate governor test reports, governor setting sheets, and/or performance monitoring reports. The burden (912 hours) associated with this category was averaged over 2014–2016 2. The response requirements included in this category were complete within 18 months of the effective date of the standard 3 or by 10/1/2015. Due to completion, the corresponding 304 annual burden hours are now being removed. Type of Respondent: NERC Registered entities (specifically balancing authorities, generator owners, generator operators). Estimate of Annual Burden: 4 The Commission estimates the annual public reporting burden for the information collection as: FERC–725T (MANDATORY RELIABILITY STANDARDS FOR THE BULK-POWER SYSTEM: TRE RELIABILITY STANDARDS) Number of respondents Annual number of responses per respondent Total number of responses Average burden and cost per response 5 Total annual burden hours and total annual cost Cost per respondent ($) (1) (2) (1) * (2) = (3) (4) (3) * (4) = (5) (5) ÷ (1) 61 1 1 16 hrs.; $1,029 .... 16 hrs.; $1,029 .... $1,029 7 130 1 130 2 hrs.; $76 8 ......... 260 hrs.; $9,815 .. $76 Total ....................................... nlaroche on DSK30NT082PROD with NOTICES Maintenance and Submission of Event Log Data.

FERC-725T [Mandatory Reliability Standards for the Bulk-Power System: 
TRE Reliability Standards]

    OMB Control No.: 1902-0273.
    Abstract: Reliability Standard BAL-001-TRE-01 applies to entities 
registered as Generator Owners (GOs), Generator Operators (GOPs), and 
Balancing Authorities (BAs) within the Texas Reliability Entity region.
    Regional Reliability Standard BAL-001-TRE-01 is more comprehensive 
than the existing continent-wide Reliability Standards addressing 
frequency response, BAL-001-0.1a and BAL-003-0.1b in that the regional 
standard includes additional requirements and applies to generator 
owners and generator operators as well as balancing authorities. The 
expanded applicability of the regional Reliability Standard, thus, 
increases the reporting burden for entities that operate within the 
ERCOT \1\ Interconnection.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ Electric Reliability Council of Texas.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The information collection requirements entail the setting or 
configuration of the Control System software, identification and 
recording of events, data retention, and submitting frequency 
measurable events to the compliance enforcement authority (Regional 
Entity or NERC).
    Submitting frequency measurable events. As per Requirement R1, the 
BA has to identify and post information regarding Frequency Measurable 
Events (FME). Further, the BA has to calculate and report to the 
Compliance Enforcement Authority data related to Primary Frequency 
Response (PFR) performance of each generating unit/generating facility.
    Data retention. The BA, GO, and GOP shall keep data or evidence to 
show compliance, as identified below, unless directed by its Compliance 
Enforcement Authority to retain specific evidence for a longer period 
of time as part of an investigation. Compliance audits are generally 
about three years apart.
     The BA shall retain a list of identified Frequency 
Measurable Events and shall retain FME information since its last 
compliance audit for Requirement R1, Measure M1.
     The BA shall retain all monthly PFR performance reports 
since its last compliance audit for Requirement R2, Measure M2.
     The BA shall retain all annual Interconnection minimum 
Frequency Response calculations, and related methodology and criteria 
documents, relating to time periods since its last compliance audit for 
Requirement R3, Measure M3.
     The BA shall retain all data and calculations relating to 
the Interconnection's Frequency Response, and all evidence of actions 
taken to increase the Interconnection's Frequency Response, since its 
last compliance audit for Requirements R4 and R5, Measures M4 and M5.
     Each GOP shall retain evidence since its last compliance 
audit for Requirement R8, Measure M8.
     Each GO shall retain evidence since its last compliance 
audit for Requirements R6, R7, R9 and R10, Measures M6, M7, M9 and M10.

Modification to Governor Controller Setting/Configuration (to be 
removed from the FERC-725T information collection). This category of 
response burden is being removed from FERC-725T. The ``Modification to 
Governor Controller Setting/Configuration'' category was a one-time 
requirement related to implementation of the BAL-001-TRE-01 Reliability 
Standard. Each GO was required to set its governor settings according 
to Requirement R6. In order to modify its settings, the GO had to 
generate governor test reports, governor setting sheets, and/or 
performance monitoring reports. The burden (912 hours) associated with 
this category was averaged over 2014-2016 \2\. The response 
requirements included in this category were complete within 18 months 
of the effective date of the standard \3\ or by 10/1/2015. Due to 
completion, the corresponding 304 annual burden hours are now being 
removed.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ The total annual figure for this response category was 304 
hours.
    \3\ The effective date of the standard was 4/1/2014.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Type of Respondent: NERC Registered entities (specifically 
balancing authorities, generator owners, generator operators).
    Estimate of Annual Burden: \4\ The Commission estimates the annual 
public reporting burden for the information collection as:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ Burden is defined as the total time, effort, or financial 
resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, or
