Today’s LiveWire Spotlight reports on the descriptions, resolutions, and the penalties assessed for Reliability Standards’ violations from April 1 thru June 20, 2017.  It summarizes the facts, risk assessments, and corrective actions for 38 separate findings reported in RFC, MRO, and WECC.

Most of the high-dollar penalties included an aggravating element; i.e.; the entity was a repeat offender or did not immediately report the violation.  Many similar incidents resulted in no fine, provided some other process was protecting the BES.
