Transmission Vegetation Management - Full compliance with NERC's revised VM standard, FAC-003-4, was required as of October 1, 2016 for Transmission Owners and Generator Owners. Ensure your company understands all the requirements set forth in the revised standard and what is needed to comply. The revised standard requires that Transmission Owners significantly modify their current Transmission Vegetation Management Programs and that Generator Owners develop new programs to comply with the new standard. Novembri Consulting can assist your company in preparing for these changes.
