FERC Issues Order on Review of Turlock NOP

On March 17, 2011, FERC issued an order in Docket No. NP10-18-000 on its review of NERC's Notice of Penalty against Turlock Irrigation District, which involved a penalty settlement agreement between WECC and NERC.  FERC upheld the penalty on review, in part because the Reliability Standard reviewed by NERC had only been mandatory for a short time prior to the violation.  In the order, FERC sets forth for the industry the principles that will guide its future determinations in reviews of notices of penalty.  To see the order, click here.
