Alaska Systems Coordinating Council

The Alaska Systems Coordinating Council (ASCC) formed in 1983, and serves the two isolated interconnections within the State of Alaska. The Alaska Systems Coordinating Council (ASCC) is an affiliate North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) member.

The ASCC region covers the two grids in the Alaska Interconnection, one of which is in South Central Alaska and the other in the Alaska Panhandle. Neither of the small grids in ASCC has interties to any other interconnection.

Famous quotes containing the words council and/or systems:

    I haven’t seen so much tippy-toeing around since the last time I went to the ballet. When members of the arts community were asked this week about one of their biggest benefactors, Philip Morris, and its requests that they lobby the New York City Council on the company’s behalf, the pas de deux of self- justification was so painstakingly choreographed that it constituted a performance all by itself.
    Anna Quindlen (b. 1952)

    Before anything else, we need a new age of Enlightenment. Our present political systems must relinquish their claims on truth, justice and freedom and have to replace them with the search for truth, justice, freedom and reason.
    Friedrich Dürrenmatt (1921–1990)
