All Bulk Power System owners, operators, and users in the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) region are required to register with the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) and comply with mandatory Reliability Standards based on the functions for which they are registered. The NERC registration process ensures that no areas lack entities to perform the duties and tasks required by the NERC Reliability Standards, and that coverage is not duplicated.
The entities responsible for meeting the requirements of each NERC and regional reliability standard are identified through NERC registration. Registration requests are reviewed by Texas Reliability Entity, Inc. (Texas RE).
Visit NERC Entity Registration Process for more information on NERC registration. Registration does not prescribe organizational structures, responsibilities or relationships; it simply records which organizations are responsible for meeting the requirements of the standards and ensures that all reliability requirements are addressed in the regions and all parts of an interconnection.
Please be aware that ERCOT market participants must also register with the ERCOT independent system operator. Registration and qualification instructions are found on ERCOT.com .
If you have any questions concerning registration or certification, please contact Rochelle Brown at firstname.lastname@example.org or 512-583-4921.
