Regional Reliability Councils

NERC's members are the eight Regional Reliability Councils whose members come from all segments of the electric industry: investor-owned utilities; federal power agencies; rural electric cooperatives; state, municipal and provincial utilities; independent power producers; power marketers; and end-use customers. These entities account for virtually all the electricity supplied in the United States, Canada, and a portion of Baja California Norte, Mexico.

NERC approved ReliabilityFirst to become one of eight regional reliability councils effective January 1, 2006.  ReliabilityFirst is the successor organization to three NERC regional reliability councils: the Mid-Atlantic Area Council, the East Central Area Coordination Agreement, and the Mid-American Interconnected Network.

The Eastern and Western Interconnects have limited interconnections to each other, and the Texas Interconnect is only linked to the others via direct current lines. Both the Western and Texas Interconnects are linked with Mexico, and the Eastern and Western Interconnects are strongly interconnected with Canada. All electric utilities in the mainland United States are connected to at least one other utility via these power grids.

The grid systems in Hawaii and Alaska are much different than on the U.S. mainland. Alaska has an interconnected grid system, but it connects only Anchorage, Fairbanks, and the Kenai Peninsula. Much of the rest of the state depends on small diesel generators, although there are a few minigrids in the state as well. Hawaii also depends on minigrids to serve each island's inhabitants.

How Automatic Power Generators Work when your primary power source goes down

How does an automatic power system work when the grid power goes down?

The systems automatic transfer switch monitors incoming voltage from the grid or utility line.  When utility power is interrupted, the transfer switch senses the problem and signals the generator to begin supplying electricity.  The electrical circuits in your home or business are automatically disconnected from the utility power line and reconnected to your unit which continues to supply electricity.   When utility or grid power is restored, the electrical circuits in your home or business are automatically disconnected from your automatic system and reconnected to your utility power line.
