Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) March 18, 2014
An OATI case study detailing proper usage of a comprehensive compliance solution is now available, following the successful implementation of OATI webCompliance at Great River Energy. The case study provides a description for remaining fully compliant with the rigorous North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) and Regional Reliability Standards.
Great River Energy turned to OATI for its OATI webCompliance solution, which monitors these complex requirements and provides up-to-date visibility into compliance statuses.
This informative case study examines the tangible benefits and real-world results Great River Energy was able to achieve.
“We have implemented a secure process to assist Transmission Providers, Balancing Authorities, and other organizations with compliance responsibilities looking to promote and manage a culture of compliance,” said Sasan Mokhtari, Ph.D., President and CEO of OATI. “Our hope is that other utilities can learn from this case study and be in full control over their compliance and reliability needs.”
