Changes are coming to the NERC Electrical Reliability Rules, effecting Ontario Generation Facilities – are you ready?

Come July 2016, the Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO) is changing the definition of which generating facilities are considered part of the Ontario Bulk Electric System (BES).

Do you connect at 115kV or greater; have an individual unit greater than 20MVA or aggregate capacity greater than 75MVA?

If so then you may have to comply with all applicable North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) standards.

Each Province has differing levels of compliance and implementation dates around NERC, with Ontario taking the lead. Are you NERC ready?

The electrical experts at Giffin Koerth are well-qualified to assess and help you become NERC-compliant. Call Keith Foster or Andy Brown at 416-368-1700 to take the first step.
