Since June 18, 2007, the U.S. electric industry operates under the North American Electric Reliability Corporation's (NERC's) mandatory, enforceable reliability standards. Utilities and other bulk power industry participants will face sanctions for violating any of the more than 107, plus the Western Electricity Coordinating Council standards - up to $1 million per day, per violation.
BPA has established a comprehensive reliability program and is actively engaging customers and customer representatives through implementation of mandatory standards. BPA is providing this site to share information and collaborate as we work to enhance the reliability of the Northwest electric system together
