Errata Notice

    On November 22, 2013, the Commission issued an order in the above-
referenced docket. Small Generator Interconnection Agreements and 
Procedures, 145 FERC ] 61,159 (2013). This errata notice serves to 
correct references to Small Generator Interconnection Procedures (SGIP) 
section numbers in the order and the pro forma SGIP, and to make other 
typographical corrections.
    In FR Doc. 2013-28515 appearing on page 73239 in the Federal 
Register of Thursday, December 5, 2013, the following corrections are 
made:
    1. On page 73256, in the second column, footnote 221 is corrected 
to read as follows:
    `` \221\ The Commission adds the following language to the first 
paragraph of section 2.1 of the SGIP:
    However, Fast Track eligibility is distinct from the Fast Track 
Process itself, and eligibility does not imply or indicate that a Small 
Generating Facility will pass the Fast Track screens in section 2.2.1 
below or the Supplemental Review screens in section 2.4.4 below.''
    2. On page 73259, in the third column, the third sentence of 
paragraph 142 is corrected to read as follows:
    ``Regarding NRECA, EEI & APPA's assertion that the use of 100 
percent of minimum load limits the flexibility to move loads and the 
ability to deploy additional sectionalizing devices for reliability 
enhancement, we note that one of the factors to be considered in the 
safety and reliability screen of the supplemental review asks whether 
operational flexibility is reduced by the proposed Small Generating 
Facility (see SGIP section 2.4.4.3.5).''
    3. On page 73264, in the second column, the last sentence of 
paragraph 182 is corrected to read as follows:
    ``We do, however, modify section 2.4.5.2 to include language that 
the Transmission Provider will provide an interconnection agreement to 
the Interconnection Customer if the Interconnection Customer agrees to 
pay for the modifications to the Transmission Provider's system, 
similar to the language in section 2.3.1 of the SGIP.''
    4. On page 73271, in the first column, footnote 449 is corrected to 
read as follows:

Appendix C, Revisions to the Pro Forma SGIP is corrected to read as

    8. On pages 73299 and 73300, sections 2.4.5.1, 2.4.5.2, and 2.4.5.3

    ``2.4.5.1 If the proposed interconnection passes the supplemental 
screens in sections 2.4.4.1, 2.4.4.2, and 2.4.4.3 above and does not 
require construction of facilities by the Transmission Provider on its 
own system, the interconnection agreement shall be provided within ten 
Business Days after the notification of the supplemental review 
results.
    2.4.5.2 If interconnection facilities or minor modifications to the 
Transmission Provider's system are required for the proposed 
interconnection to pass the supplemental screens in sections 2.4.4.1, 
2.4.4.2, and 2.4.4.3 above, and the Interconnection Customer agrees to 
pay for the modifications to the Transmission Provider's electric 
system, the interconnection agreement, along with a non-binding good 
faith estimate for the interconnection facilities and/or minor 
modifications, shall be provided to the Interconnection Customer within 
15 Business Days after receiving written notification of the 
supplemental review results.
    2.4.5.3 If the proposed interconnection would require more than 
interconnection facilities or minor modifications to the Transmission 
Provider's system to pass the supplemental screens in sections 2.4.4.1, 
2.4.4.2, and 2.4.4.3 above, the Transmission Provider shall notify the 
Interconnection Customer, at the same time it notifies the 
Interconnection Customer with the supplemental review results, that the 
Interconnection Request shall be evaluated under the section 3 Study 
Process unless the Interconnection Customer withdraws its Small 
Generating Facility.''
    9. On page 73349, Section 10.0 of Attachment 8 (Facilities Study
