Resource Adequacy

All documents associated with this group are located under the "related documents" section in the sidebar of this page. 

In the SPP Balancing Authority Area, Load Responsible Entities, as defined in Attachment AA of the SPP OATT, are the responsible entities for resource adequacy.

SPP’s goal is to support the achievement of resource adequacy by ensuring there is enough capacity available to meet the needs of all end-use customers in SPP. SPP staff and the Supply Adequacy Working Group (SAWG) are responsible for the development and implementation of policies and processes to ensure the reliable supply of capacity necessary to meet demand and supply adequacy requirements/methodologies in SPP. In addition, SPP staff and the SAWG are responsible for ensuring that these processes and policies meet the compliance obligations of NERC Reliability Standards.
