The FERC–715 enables the Commission to use the information as part of their regulatory oversight functions which include: • The review of rates and charges; • The disposition of jurisdictional facilities; • The consolidation and mergers; • The adequacy of supply and; • Reliability of the nation’s transmission grid. The FERC–715 enables the Commission to facilitate and resolve transmission disputes. Additionally, the Office of Electric Reliability (OER) uses the FERC–715 data to help protect and improve the reliability and security of the nation’s bulk power system. OER oversees the development and review of mandatory reliability and security standards and ensures compliance with the approved standards by the users, owners, and operators of the bulk power system. OER also monitors and addresses issues concerning the nation’s bulk power system including assessments of resource adequacy and reliability. Without the FERC–715 data, the Commission would be unable to evaluate planned projects or requests related to transmission.
