On August 8, 2005, U.S. President George W. Bush signed The Energy Policy Act of 2005 into law. The legislation authorizes the creation of a self-regulatory electric reliability organization (ERO) that spans North America, with Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) oversight in the United States. The legislation makes compliance with North American Reliability Council (NERC) and regional reliability rules mandatory and enforceable.

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 include:

  • 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.
