FERC Accepts two NERC Notices of Penalties


January 9, 2009
On January 9, FERC issued an order accepting two NERC notices of penalty (NOPs) concerning Edgecombe Generating LLC ($3,000 for a single violation of Reliability Standard TOP-002) and E.ON U.S. ($235,000 for violations of Reliability FAC-001) that were on December 12, 2008.  Although FERC accepted both penalties, FERC stated that, in the future, it expects NERC to file mitigation plans in all penalty cases where a Registered Entity neither admits nor denies violations.  To view FERC’s order, click here.
