Operation Standards Filing Requirements

Each generation unit covered by General Order (GO) 167, Section 8.2.3.1, must adopt and implement an Operation Plan that complies with all the Operation Standards. As part of compliance process, Generating Asset Owners (GAO) must submit an Operation Plan Summary and a Certification of Compliance on a periodic basis.

 

Operation Plan Summary

A letter from the Executive Director, dated November 1, 2005, states that Generating Asset Owners are required to file an Operation Plan Summary.

Certification of Compliance with Operation Standards

GO 167, Subsections 8.2 and 15.1.1 require each Generating Asset Owner to file the Initial Certification of Compliance with the Operation Standards for each generating unit and to recertify every other year.
