Some generation service providers are concerned about these new
regulations due to their lack of experience with the required measurements.
Other utilities see this as an opportunity to define a systematic
approach to their maintenance and documentation and establish performance
standards for their equipment.
Kestrel provides a complete
service offering based on our "Compliance
Life Cycle" model (refer to our Articles link for a complete
description). With this approach, regulatory reporting requirements
are met as a byproduct of the process, rather than being the main
focus. Compliance is achieved at a reasonable cost with minimal
disruption to normal operation. The elements of this service offering
- Audit of utility's existing data collection and reporting
- Staff training
- Development of tailored testplans based on station requirements
- Compliance testing
- Compliance reporting
Our approach is unique in that it encourages utility independence
by building compliance requirements into other business operations.
