​The NERC Board of Trustees and MRO's Board of Directors have approved revisions to a Delegation Agreement between NERC and MRO, expanding MRO's regional boundaries. The revisions resulted from the dissolution of the Southwest Power Pool Regional Entity (SPP RE) and NERC's registration of 109 of SPP RE's 123 registered entities in MRO. The revisions will not be effective until approval by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

This page is dedicated to resources related to the transition of SPP RE registered entities to MRO. 

​For questions on transition, please contact transition@midwestreliability.org.
