Navigating FERC Order 881

Time is crucial for energy providers. With new Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) mandates in place, transmission providers are required to implement and use ambient-adjusted ratings for transmission lines by 2025.

Ready to get compliant? 

A crucial regulatory shift demands your attention. The latest FERC mandate deadline is approaching. It’s time to act to ensure compliance.

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission granted approval for a final rule designed to enhance the efficiency of the nation’s transmission grid. The primary goal is to reduce costs for consumers by improving the accuracy and transparency of transmission line ratings. These ratings, reflecting the maximum transfer capability of each transmission line, can vary based on weather conditions. The new rule mandates all transmission providers, whether within or outside organized markets, to use ambient-adjusted ratings for evaluating near-term transmission service. This move aims to increase the precision of near-term line ratings, which traditionally rely on conservative assumptions about worst-case, long-term air temperature, and other weather conditions. Such conservative approaches often result in the underutilization of the transmission grid.
