WAPA proactively addresses system reliability and contingency planning. Delivering on our mission of marketing federal hydropower throughout 15 states requires us to continually study and analyze operations​. We partner with our customers and neighboring utilities with the goal of improving situational awareness for transmission operators and reliability coordinators, so they are prepared for a worst-case scenario in real-time conditions.
