WECC Board Chair William Chamberlain, chief counsel for the California Energy Commission, opened the meeting saying that it would be the "first of three critically important board meetings as WECC continues to prepare for and pursue its long-term ambition to be recognized as a regional entity under Section 215 of the Federal Power Act of the United States. Chamberlain said WECC is endeavoring to make the case that it is prepared to oversee reliability issues for the Western Interconnection, and that "the Western Interconnection will be in good hands under WECC's leadership."
Chamberlain added that NERC would be submitting its first ERO budget the week of Aug. 7, which would include WECC's proposed budget for its role as the Western Interconnection's reliability overseer. He also said and that WECC and NERC were very close to finalizing a delegation agreement (WECC submitted a draft delegation agreement to NERC Aug. 7, and plans to have a finalized version for the WECC board to approve at its October meeting).
In regard to the proposed 102 NERC reliability standards, Chamberlain stressed that FERC will likely not be able to approve all of them for mandatory implementation by the end of 2006.
"There are something between 25 to as many as 51 standards that are considered ready to go, and the rest will require more work either to make them clearer or more complete, such as including compliance metrics and levels of severity of violations," Chamberlain said. He added that FERC is considering approving standards with a sunset date, perhaps five years out, so they can be adjusted to technology improvements in the different North American regions. Approval of standards would likely be prioritized according to their importance to reliability, and those not yet ready for enforcement under Section 215 would remain identified as "Good Utility Practice," which would preserve their applicability by utilities, through their Open Access Tariffs.
Chamberlain remarked that he found agreement within WECC that the organization should move away from the idea that it, as a regional entity, would have a completely separate set of reliability standards from NERC, and instead should assist NERC in creating a set of comprehensive standards for North America. To that end, he recommended that WECC members should provide personnel to work in NERC's drafting teams.
"There's a sense that the priority now should be on helping NERC through the transition," he said.

Will it be renewables, gas, nukes? So we see a significant emergence of economics that translate to higher prices for our customers," he said at the meeting.
