Standards and Codes

Since the NSPI electrical system is integrated with the bulk power system across North America, NSPI is required to comply with standards and codes as governed by the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) and the Northeast Power Coordinating Council (NPCC.) This obligation to comply extends to market participants and generators interconnected with the Nova Scotia Power grid.
