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 were 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 (MANDATORY RELIABILITY STANDARDS FOR THE NORTHEAST POWER COORDINATING COUNCIL) Information collection requirements Number of respondents Annual number of responses per respondent Total number of responses Average burden hours & cost ($) per response Total annual burden hours & total annual cost ($) Cost per respondent ($) (1) (2) (1) * (2) = (3) (4) (3) * (4) = (5) (5) ÷ (1) PCs Design and document automatic UFLS program.

    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 were in place at a continent-wide level and

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

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

    \1\ ``Burden'' is the total time, effort, or financial resources

explanation of what is included in the information collection 
burden, refer to Title 5 Code of Federal Regulations 1320.3.
    \2\ Commission staff estimates that the industry's skill set and

same as the Commission's average cost. The FERC 2019 average salary 
plus benefits for one FERC full-time equivalent (FTE) is $167,091/
