Through the Compliance Monitoring and Enforcement Program (CMEP), NERC and Regional Entities, including WECC, assure reliability by holding entities in the Western Interconnection accountable for compliance with Reliability Standards.
Approximately 25 percent of all Registered Entities in the United States are under WECC's jurisdiction. As of January 1, 2017, there were 370 unique U.S. entities registered with NERC through WECC.
There are also international entities for which WECC provides certain oversight services. These entities are not included in the table.
NOTE: In some cases, multiple operational entities share a single registration, while other entities are split across multiple registrations.
For example, one entity operates two distinct BAs but has one registration. Two international entites are registered as BAs, while another operates a BA but is not registered as one. From an operational perspective there are 38 BAs. However, there are only 34 BAs registered with NERC in the WECC footprint.
