EDF Renewable Services has successfully relocated its Operations Control Center (OCC) from a Minnesota-based facility to San Diego over the course of several months and is now fully operational, managing over 6 GW of wind and solar projects across North America. Furthermore, the company is now listed as a generation operator on the North American Electric Reliability Corp. (NERC) compliance registry with the Western Electricity Coordinating Council (WECC).

WECC is one of eight NERC Regional Reliability Organizations responsible for coordinating and promoting the bulk electric system (BES) reliability in the Western Interconnection.

EDF says its $4 million facility combines the OCC, supervisory control and data acquisition, and operations and maintenance auxiliary services into a technical services hub to help improve response times and track key performance indicators. The company adds that the new OCC offers customers the ability to grow their regulatory compliance practices and improve their cybersecurity over BES cyber assets by leveraging advances in cyber and physical security.
