NERC Certification

The client was certified as a transmission operator by the NERC regional reliability entity and has begun energizing transmission assets


An independent transmission company sought to build, own, and operate transmission assets in Texas. In addition to building transmission lines and substations, the client sought to build primary and backup transmission control centers, establish procedures and business systems required to meet compliance requirements, build all technology systems, and hire and train all required staff. ScottMadden was retained to assist with developing the operating strategy for the new control centers, developing project and staffing plans for the organization, and ultimately providing program management for the effort.

  • Engaged the client’s corporate compliance organization to develop a compliance program and supporting procedure documentation
