On July 24, 2003, the Commission issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking in this docket, with comments due on or before October 3, 2003.[1] Since we first requested comments, the small generator industry has continued to evolve. Moreover, several states have adopted new guidelines for small generator interconnections and the various stakeholders who participated in the Commission's Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking consensus Start Printed Page 51025process have continued working toward resolving various issues.[2]
