Abstract: On August 8, 2005, Congress enacted into law the Electricity Modernization Act of 2005, which is Title XII, Subtitle A, of the Energy Policy Act of 2005 (EPAct 2005).2 EPAct 2005 added a new section 215 to the FPA, which required a Commission-certified Electric Reliability Organization (ERO) to develop mandatory and enforceable Reliability Standards, which are subject to Commission review and approval. Once approved, the Reliability Standard may be enforced by the ERO subject to Commission oversight, or the Commission can independently enforce Reliability Standards.3 On February 3, 2006, the Commission issued Order No. 672, implementing section 215 of the FPA.4 Pursuant to Order No. 672, the Commission certified one organization, North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC), as the ERO.5 The Reliability Standards developed by the ERO and approved by the Commission apply to users, owners and operators of the Bulk-Power System as set forth in each Reliability Standard. FERC–725R includes the following nation-wide Reliability Standards: 6 • BAL–001–2,7 Real Power Balancing Control Performance.

It provides consistent methods for measuring Frequency Response and determining the Frequency Bias Setting. Each balancing authority reports its previous year Frequency Response Measure and Frequency Bias Setting to NERC via FRS (Frequency Response Survey) Form 1.

being considered for approval. (A Notice requesting comments on the 
changes proposed in Docket No. RD20-9-000 is posted in eLibrary at

Those changes are addressed separately in Docket No. RD20-9-000 and

    OMB Control No.: 1902-0268
    Type of Request: Three-year renewal request for the FERC-725R 
information collection requirements, with no changes to the reporting 
and recordkeeping requirements.
    Abstract:
    On August 8, 2005, Congress enacted into law the Electricity 
Modernization Act of 2005, which is Title XII, Subtitle A, of the 
Energy Policy Act of 2005 (EPAct 2005).\2\ EPAct 2005 added a new 
section 215 to the FPA, which required a Commission-certified Electric 
Reliability Organization (ERO) to develop mandatory and enforceable 
Reliability Standards, which are subject to Commission review and 
approval. Once approved, the Reliability Standard may be enforced by 
the ERO subject to Commission oversight, or the Commission can 
independently enforce Reliability Standards.\3\

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On February 3, 2006, the Commission issued Order No. 672, 
implementing section 215 of the FPA.\4\ Pursuant to Order No. 672, the 
Commission certified one organization, North American Electric

     BAL-001-2,\7\ Real Power Balancing Control Performance.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ It was approved in Docket No. RM14-10.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Reliability Standard BAL-001-2 is designed to ensure that 
applicable entities balance generation and load by maintaining system 
frequency within narrow bounds around a scheduled value, and it 
improves reliability by adding a frequency component to the measurement 
of a Balancing Authority's Area Control Error (ACE).\8\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ Area Control Error is the instantaneous difference between a 
Balancing Authority's net actual and scheduled interchange, taking 
into accounts the effects of Frequency Bias, correction for meter 
error, and Automatic Time Error Correction (ATEC), if operating in 
the ATEC mode. ATEC is only applicable to Balancing Authorities in 
the Western Interconnection. NERC Glossary.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

     BAL-002-3,\9\ Disturbance Control Standard--Contingency 
Reserve for Recovery from a Balancing Contingency Event.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ It was approved in Docket No. RD18-7.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    This standard ensures that a responsible entity, either a balancing 
authority or reserve sharing group, is able to recover from system 
contingencies by deploying adequate reserves to return their Area 
Control Error to defined values and replacing the capacity and energy 
lost due to generation or transmission equipment outages.
     BAL-003-1,\10\ Frequency Response and Frequency Bias 
Setting.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ It was approved in Docket No. RM13-11; the current version 
is Reliability Standard BAL-003-1.1.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    This standard requires sufficient Frequency Response from the 
Balancing Authority (BA) to maintain Interconnection Frequency within 
predefined bounds by arresting frequency deviations and supporting 
frequency until the frequency is restored to its scheduled value. It 
also ensures that balancing authority's Frequency Bias Setting is 
accurately calculated to match its actual Frequency Response. It 
provides consistent methods for measuring Frequency Response and 
determining the Frequency Bias Setting. Each balancing authority 
reports its previous year Frequency Response Measure and Frequency Bias 
Setting to NERC via FRS (Frequency Response Survey) Form 1. The 
information provided on the FRS Form 1 is based on events which qualify 
for analyses; NERC identifies between 20 to 35 events in each 
Interconnection for calculating the Frequency Response Measure and 
Frequency Bias Setting.
     BAL-005-1,\11\ Balancing Authority Control.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \11\ It was approved in Docket No. RM16-13.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    This standard establishes requirements for acquiring data necessary 
to calculate Reporting Area Control Error (Reporting ACE). The standard 
also specifies a minimum periodicity, accuracy, and availability 
requirement for acquisition of the data

[[Page 53359]]

and for providing the information to the System Operator. It requires 
balancing authorities to maintain minimum levels of annual availability 
of 99.5% for each balancing authority system for calculating Reporting 
ACE.
    Type of Respondent: Balancing Authorities, Response Sharing Group, 
and Frequency Response Sharing Group.
    Estimate of Annual Burden:\12\ Our estimate of the number of 
respondents affected is based on the NERC Compliance Registry as of 
July 17, 2020.\13\ According to the Compliance Registry, NERC has 
registered 97 Balancing Authorities (BA), 11 Response Sharing Groups 
(RSG), and 1 Frequency Response Sharing Group (FRSG) within the United 
States, as noted. The burden estimates reflect the number of affected 
entities for each standard. Estimates for the average annual burden and 
cost \14\ follow.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \12\ Burden is defined as the total time, effort, or financial 
resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, or 
disclose or provide information to or for a federal agency. See 5 
CFR 1320 for additional information on the definition of information 
collection burden.
