In this Notice, the Commission requests comments on a proposal to collect additional data from certain market-based rate (MBR) sellers (Sellers) 1 through revisions to the data dictionary and XML schema that accompany the relational database established in Order No. 860 (MBR Data Dictionary).2 Specifically, the Commission proposes revisions to the MBR Data Dictionary to require that Sellers whose ultimate upstream affiliate(s) 3 own their voting securities pursuant to a section 203(a)(2) blanket authorization, provide in the relational database the docket number of the section 203(a)(2) blanket authorization, and the utility ID types and the utility IDs of the upstream affiliates whose securities were acquired pursuant to that section 203(a)(2) blanket authorization.4 I. Background 2. On July 18, 2019, the Commission issued Order No. 860, which revised certain aspects of the substance and format of information Sellers submit to the Commission for market-based rate purposes. Among other things, the Commission adopted the approach to collect market-based rate information in a relational database.5 The Commission also specified that any significant changes to the MBR Data Dictionary will be proposed in a Commission order or rulemaking, which would provide an opportunity for comment.6 3. In support, the Commission explained that the relational database 1 A Seller is defined as any person that has authorization to or seeks authorization to engage in sales for resale of electric energy, capacity or ancillary services at market-based rates under section 205 of the Federal Power Act (FPA). 18 CFR 35.36(a)(1); 16 U.S.C. 824d. 2 Data Collection for Analytics & Surveillance & Mkt.-Based Rate Purposes, Order No. 860, 168 FERC ¶ 61,039 (2019), order on reh’g and clarification, Order No. 860–A, 170 FERC ¶ 61,129 (2020). 3 ‘‘Ultimate upstream affiliate’’ is defined as the furthest upstream affiliate(s) in the ownership chain—i.e., each of the upstream of affiliate(s) of a Seller, who itself does not have 10% or more of its outstanding securities owned, held or controlled, with power to vote, by any person (including an individual or company).
