NERC Submits 2008 Long-Term Reliability Assessment to FERC

On October 31, 2008, NERC submitted the 2008 Long-Term Reliability Assessment to FERC.  NERC did not request the Commission to take any action on the assessment but, instead, submitted it simply as an informational filing.  The 2008 Long-Term Reliability Assessment represents NERC’s independent judgment of the reliability and adequacy of the bulk power system in North American for the coming ten years.  NERC’s assessment identifies areas of concern regarding the reliability of the bulk power system and makes recommendations for their remedy.  To view NERC’s 2008 Long-Term Reliability Assessment, click here.
