FERC and NERC Release Task Force Report on Southwest Outages

FERC and NERC Release Task Force Report on Southwest Outages

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) and the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) released a staff report making recommendations to help prevent a recurrence of rolling blackouts and natural gas curtailments experienced by customers in the Southwest during extreme cold weather the first week of February 2011.

Concluding a six-month inquiry, the task force found a majority of the electric outages and gas shortages were due to weather-related causes. Although generators and gas producers reported having winterization procedures and practices in place, responses were generally reactive in their approach to winterization and preparedness.
