Response Plans for Electric Utility Companies

Electric Utilities are typically required to comply with Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (SPCC) requirements and in some cases, Facility Response Plan (FRP) requirements.  In addition, utilities likely require Emergency Response Plans (ERP) and Business Continuity Plans (BCP), among others.  TRP’s SMARTPLANTM software greatly improves accessibility and reduces plan maintenance efforts for FRPs, SPCC plans, ERPs, and BCPs, especially for large operations.

Why do Utility Companies need plans?

Electric power generation includes power plants, substations, transformers, and other equipment that store oil or diesel fuel to trigger SPCC, and possibly FRP requirements. BCPs are needed to identify critical processes and recovery strategies. ERPs are needed to ensure that there are processes in place to address evacuation, and response to fire, security, and severe weather situations, among others.

TRP’s SMARTPLANTM software greatly improves accessibility to your plans and reduces plan maintenance efforts for FRPs, ERPs, BCPs and SPCC plans, especially for operations with multiple locations.

Response Planning Software for Companies with Multiple Locations

Maintaining site-specific plans across many facilities and geographic locations is a challenge.  SMARTPLANTM maintains all plan content in a database, which eliminates the need to revise duplicate information, and results in more accurate plans with less updating required. Companies with large operations benefit the most from this technology and approach.

How TRP can Help?

Response plans are time consuming to update and obtaining regulatory approval can be challenging. TRP can incorporate these plans into our SMARTPLANTM software, and even identify gaps to ensure regulatory compliance. We'll also submit your plans to regulators on your behalf.

TRP also provides training on use of SMARTPLANTM for updating these plans, and on other useful features of the software. Our software makes it easy to update names, telephone numbers and other content to keep your plans up to date.
