NERC Compliance Services

Specializing in Engineered Solutions

Maintaining the integrity of your electrical infrastructure is vital. Failure to comply with standards set by the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) can not only result in hefty fines, but can leave you financially and operationally vulnerable. Secure and properly configured systems can actually lower your administrative cost and risk.

CE Power and 3C Electrical have joined forces to make the technical requirements of NERC compliance a whole lot easier. Together, we’ve created a new division of CE Power devoted exclusively to NERC support—comprehensive, one-stop guidance that includes services such as relay-setting conformance, system modeling, equipment maintenance and technical training.

We are your partner from start to finish, giving you comprehensive guidance and engineering support that accommodates your needs and budget.
