Energy Alert

On 7 July 2011, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) issued an order approving a stipulation and consent agreement between the Office of Enforcement (Enforcement), the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC), and the Western Electric Coordinating Council (WECC). The stipulation and consent agreement stem from an investigation into possible violations of Reliability Standards related to a Bulk Electric System disturbance in Utah on 14 February 2008. WECC has agreed to pay a US$350,000 penalty and to revise its compliance program. The incident occurred when the Pacific Northwest Security Coordinator (PNSC) was Reliability Coordinator, but WECC has now assumed PNSC's Reliability Coordinator function, including all of PNSC's obligations and liabilities.
