  • Penalty allocation procedure tariff amendment
    The ISO is proposing draft tariff language on the process it intends to follow when seeking authority from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to allocate the cost of any monetary penalties that regulatory bodies impose. The proposed procedure follows FERC’s guidance in its Order Providing Guidance on Recovery of Reliability Penalty Costs by Regional Transmission Organizations and Independent System Operators.
    • Outcome
      The tariff now specifies the ISO process for seeking FERC approval, on a case-by-case basis, to allocate reliability-related penalties either directly to participants whose actions caused or contributed to violations or to all participants when cause cannot be established. The tariff also includes procedural protections for a participant who may be subject to a direct allocation request. — Effective: March 5, 2012; FERC order: May 25, 2012 (ER12-760); Tariff amendment filing: Jan 4, 2012 (ER12-760); Board of Governors approval: Dec. 15, 2011
