The Commission is also directing NERC to submit to the Commission an informational filing within 90 days of the issuance of this final rule that includes a detailed, comprehensive standards development plan providing that all new or modified Reliability Standards necessary to address the inverter-based resource-related reliability gaps identified in this final rule be submitted to the Commission by November 4, 2026.
