Peak Reliability

In January 2014, WECC plans to bifurcated the organization into WECC (the Regional Entity) and Peak Reliability (the Reliability Coordinator Company – RCCO). This effort began in early fall 2012, in response to conflict of interest concerns raised by NERC in regard to WECC’s handling of the September 8, 2011 outage.

Peak Reliability began formal operations on January 1, 2014. The mission statement of the new company is as follows: “The RCCo shall support and promote the social welfare by endeavoring to ensure reliability by providing real-time, Interconnection-wide oversight of the Bulk Electric System (BES) within the RCCo footprint, coordinating necessary real-time and seasonal planning and modeling, and ensuring that data critical to the reliable and efficient operation of the BES is shared appropriately.”
