Regional Reliability Standards Development

Texas Reliability Entity, Inc. (Texas RE) encourages registered entities and other interested parties to participate in the Regional Reliability Standards Development Process which develops separate regional reliability standards that go beyond, add detail to, or implement NERC Reliability Standards, or that cover matters not addressed in NERC Reliability Standards.

Any entity (organization, company, government agency, individual, etc.) that is directly and materially affected by the reliability of the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) regional bulk power systems may request an ERCOT region-specific reliability standard to be developed, modified, or withdrawn. To initiate such a request, send the Standard Authorization Request Form (found below) to the Reliability Standards Manager External Link.

The eleven members of the Reliability Standards Committee (RSC) are elected each year to represent each of six Texas RE Standards Development Sectors. The RSC reviews and recommends action on ERCOT region-specific reliability standards and regional variances to NERC standards. RSC meetings are open. To join one of the RSC’s standard drafting teams, contact the Reliability Standards Manager External Link.

Entities and individuals (regardless of Membership in Texas RE) that are ERCOT region BPS owners, operators and users and qualify for one of the Texas RE Standards Development Sectors may join the Registered Ballot Body (RBB) to vote on regional standards. Each interested entity may have one representative in the RBB. To join the RBB, complete the registration form below, and send to the Reliability Standards Manager External Link.

Visit Texas RE Mailing Lists External Link to sign up to receive regional standards news.
