Prior to each winter and summer season, MRO provides NERC an assessment of the overall reliability and adequacy of the regional Bulk Power System (BPS), as well as identifies risks that could impact the upcoming season. 

MRO also participates in the development of long-term reliability assessment studies and reviews emerging issues and potential impacts to reliability in the Eastern Interconnection.

MRO annually collects, reviews and accepts the seasonal and long-term reliability assessments of the Planning Coordinator reporting areas within the MRO Region from an operation and planning perspective. The assessments are intended to evaluate existing and planned generation and transmission facilities to identify key reliability issues and the risks and uncertainties affecting adequacy and security of the bulk electric system. The seasonal and long-term reliability assessments are performed in-conjunction with the annual NERC Reliability Assessments.‚Äč
