SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: FERC–725I (Mandatory Reliability Standards for the Northeast Power Coordinating Council). OMB Control No.: 1902–0258. Type of Request: Three-year extension of the FERC–725I with no changes to the current reporting and recordkeeping requirements. Abstract: The Regional Reliability standard PRC–006–NPCC–1 (Automatic Underfrequency Load Shedding) provides regional requirements for Automatic Underfrequency Load Shedding to applicable entities in NPCC. UFLS requirements have been in place at a continent-wide level and within NPCC for many years prior to the implementation of federally mandated reliability standards in 2007. NPCC and its members think that a region-wide, fully coordinated single set of UFLS requirements is necessary to create an effective and efficient UFLS program, and their experience has supported that belief. Information collection burden for Reliability Standard PRC–006–NPCC–01 is based on the time needed for planning coordinators and generator owners to incrementally gather data, run studies, and analyze study results to design or update the UFLS programs that are required in the regional Reliability Standard (in addition to the requirements of the NERC Reliability Standard PRC–006–3). There is also burden on the generator owners to maintain data. Type of Respondent: Generator Owners and Planning Coordinators Estimate of Annual Burden: 1 The number of respondents is based on NERC’s Registry as of July 26, 2019. Entities registered for more than one applicable function type have been accounted for in the figures below. The Commission estimates the annual public reporting burden and cost 2 for the information collection as: FERC–725I Information collection requirements PCs design and document automatic UFLS program.
