stability assessments. Our planners not only interact with internal teams but also become active with their industry
peers on regional activities (e.g. NPCC, ISO’s, etc.). Each planner has the freedom to work independently while
being given opportunities to lead, all while receiving constant support from and collaborating with other team
members across Avangrid.
A familiarity with various planning standards (e.g. NERC, NPCC, etc.) and planning software packages such as
PSS/E and TARA is certainly a plus; however, most importantly we are looking for a collaborative, technical and
innovative power systems engineer with good communications skills that wants to be part of a highly effective team.
Our planning team also places a high value on other related experiences in the electrical power industry such as
substation design, construction and protection and control systems.
