NERC Submits Notice of Penalty regarding Duke Energy Carolinas to FERC

On December 19, NERC filed a penalty notice at FERC regarding Duke Energy Carolinas, LLC (Duke).  The Notice of Penalty was filed because, based on information from SERC, Duke submitted a self-report on August 27, 2007, of an outage of a 230 kV transmission line possibly caused by a flashover between vegetation located inside the right-of-way and overhead ungrounded supply conductors, which SERC determined to be evidence of an alleged violation of FAC-003 Requirement 2.  The Notice of Penalty also contains the settlement agreement between SERC and Duke.  To view the Notice of Penalty, click here.
