Operating Reliability Working Group

Operating Reliability Working Group

The Operating Reliability Working Group (ORWG) develops, maintains, and coordinates the implementation of policies related to the reliable and secure operation of the Bulk Electric System within the SPP Reliability Coordinator, Balancing Authority, and SPP Reserve Sharing Group (RSG) footprints. The ORWG ensures these operating policies are consistent with NERC and Regional Reliability Standards. The ORWG provides oversight and direction for the Reliability Coordinator and Balancing Authority functions of the SPP and assigned SPP working groups. The ORWG provides policy input to the MOPC and BOD and its committees, if requested.
