I am beginning to wonder who is in charge of boosting the visibility of NERC.

Everything seems to be FERC 24/7 these days.

As I understand, the mission of NERC is "to ensure the reliability of the North America bulk power system".

Randy Hardy was predicting a capacity shortage for the PNW a long time ago. Yet, some people are seriously advocating for the breaching of the lower river dams.

When does NERC find their voice and who will be it?

Seems like nobody is speaking about the deteriorating reliability of delivering electricity to the country.

I just have to say-- bravo on the branding by Rep Casten. That alone will get some much needed extra attention on the issue. NERC, takes notes!
