NERC Submits Response to FERC Order regarding WPSC Notice of Penalty

On June 18, 2009, NERC submitted its response to the Commission’s May 29, 2009 Order addressing NERC’s May 1, 2009 Notice of Penalty (NOP) regarding Wisconsin Public Service Corporation's (WPSC) violations of Reliability Standard PRC-005-1, Requirements 1 and 2.  In the May 29 Order, the Commission expressed concern that the NOP lacked sufficient facts and evidence to thoroughly assess the NOP and, in this regard, the Commission requested that NERC and MRO provide additional data and documentation to facilitate its review.  To view NERC’s response to the Commission's request for additional information on the WPSC NOP, click here.
