- FERC, NERC to Open Joint Inquiry into Winter Storm Elliott
On December 28th, FERC, NERC, and NERC’s Regional Entities announced that they will open a joint inquiry into the operations of the bulk power system during the extreme winter weather conditions that occurred during Winter Storm Elliott. The severe cold weather over the weekend contributed to power outages affecting millions of electricity customers across the country. Although most of these outages were due to weather impacts on electric distribution facilities operated by local utilities, utilities in parts of the southeast were forced to engage in rolling blackouts and the bulk power system in other regions was significantly stressed. FERC, NERC, and the Regional Entities will work with other federal agencies, states, and utilities to identify problems with the performance of the bulk power system and, where appropriate, recommended solutions for addressing those issues.
