- Filter By Electric Reliability Law Blog
On June 21, 2016, in Docket Nos. EL13-52, RR13-12, RR13-10, and RR14-6, FERC issued an order granting the joint motion of the Western Electricity Coordinating Council (“WECC”) and Peak Reliability (“Peak”) to terminate the Reliability Coordinator and Interchange Authority Agreement (“RC IA Agreement”) between WECC and Peak. FERC also granted, with minor modifications, Edison Electric Institute’s motion to vacate all or portions of prior FERC orders related to Peak’s funding under section 215 of the Federal Power Act. The parties agreed that termination of the RC IA Agreement is appropriate as WECC’s sub-delegation of the reliability coordinator function has become unnecessary given the development of Peak’s alternative funding mechanism.To view FERC’s order, click here.
