RP3: Review Panel

The RP3 Review Panel has 18 members. Six of the panel members are the officers on three Association committees: Safety, Transmission & Distribution, and System Planning. The other 12 panel members are nominated by the chair of the Association's board.

One panel seat represents either a joint action agency or state association. Six panels seats are for two representatives each from small, medium, and large public power utilities. The other five panel seats are for representatives of reliability, safety, system improvement, and human resources.

Panel members serve two-year terms and can choose to serve up to three terms. When there is a vacancy on the Panel, a call for nominees is released. The Panel meets in October and December each year to score and vote on the RP3 applications. The panel’s three-member executive committee handles any items between panel meetings.
