Bonneville Power Administration to Establish New Organization; Appoints Larry Bekkedahl to the Advisory Committee
Jul 12 13
Bonneville Power Administration announced that Larry Bekkedahl will represent large transmission operators on the newly formed Reliability Coordination company's board of directors. Larry Bekkedahl, senior vice president of Transmission Services, will help establish a new organization that will take over the region's reliability coordinator role currently held by the Western Electricity Coordinating Council. In his role on the advisory committee, Bekkedahl will represent the interests of large transmission operators and owners, communicating BPA's perspective to the RCCo's independent board of directors.
In a landmark decision on June 27, 2013 the council's board of directors agreed to split WECC into two separate organizations: one that focuses on reliability and one that performs regulatory activities. Following that decision, the WECC members selected Bekkedahl and 14 other member representatives to serve on the advisory committee of what is being called the Reliability Coordination Company.
