SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: FERC–516A, Standardization of Small Generator Interconnection Agreements and Procedures. OMB Control No.: 1902–0203. DATES: PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Type of Request: Three-year extension of the FERC–516A information collection requirements with no changes to the current reporting requirements. Abstract: Under Sections 205 and 206 of the Federal Power Act (FPA) the Commission is charged with ensuring just and reasonable electric transmission rates and charges as well as ensuring that jurisdictional providers do not subject any person to any undue prejudice or disadvantage. The lack of consistent and readily accessible terms and conditions for connecting resources to the grid led to a large number of disputes between jurisdictional transmission providers and small generators in the late 1990s and early 2000s. In response, the Commission directed transmission providers to include Commissionapproved, standard, pro-forma interconnection procedures (small generator interconnection procedures or SGIP) and a single uniformly applicable interconnection agreement (small generator interconnection agreement or SGIA) in their open-access transmission tariffs (OATTs). The requirement to create and file these documents was instituted August 2005 by Commission Order No. 2006 and is codified in 18 CFR 35.28(f). This requirement set and maintained a standard in OATTs for consistent consideration and processing of interconnection requests by transmission providers. Since the issuance of Order No. 2006, many aspects of the energy industry have changed including the growth of small generator interconnection requests and the growth in solar photovoltaic (PV) installations. These changes have been driven, in part, by state renewable energy goals and policies. For example, approximately 3,300 MW of gridconnected PV capacity were installed in the U.S. in 2012 compared to 79 MW in 2005, the year Order No. 2006 was issued. In February 2012, pursuant to Sections 205 and 206 of the FPA and Rule 207 of the Commission’s Rules of Practice and Procedures, and noting that the Commission encouraged stakeholders to submit proposed revisions to the regulations set forth in Order No. 2006, the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) filed a Petition to Initiate Rulemaking (Petition). The Petition requested the Commission revise the pro forma SGIA and SGIP set forth in Order No. 2006. SEIA asserted that the pro forma SGIP and SGIA as applied to small solar generation were no longer just and reasonable, had become unduly discriminatory, and presented unreasonable barriers to market entry.
