Canal Station goes live with PowerGADS
Canal Station, once part of the NRG subsidiary, GenOn, will continue to use PowerGADS to collect and submit data to NERC. PowerGADS had been the preferred application from NRG and GenOn. Canal Station is utilizing Integ's cloud based PowerGADS application, where users can generate statistical generation data from a variety of sources, whether contained in a centralized location or distributed among several. Upon collection, all data is validated using NERC Level 1 and Level 2 diagnostics. Once validated, the data is used for several purposes, including internal reporting; for example, the Station Performance and Generating Outage Rate Program. PowerGADS then submits this gathered data to an ISO/RTO or the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) using standard "card" formats.
