Operating Reliability Working Group

Operating Reliability Working Group

The Operating Reliability Working Group (ORWG) develops and oversees policies and procedures related to the reliable and secure operation of the Bulk Electric System within SPP’s Reliability Coordinator, Balancing Authority and Reserve Sharing Group footprints. The ORWG ensures these operating policies are consistent with North American Electric Reliability Corporation and regional reliability standards.

The ORWG is comprised of representatives from SPP’s membership. The ORWG scope in the governing documents folder provides more information about this group and its work.
