Sections: Methodology for Implementing Operating Reserve Demand Curve (ORDC) to Calculate Real-Time Reserve Price Adder
Description: Since it was implemented in June 2014, the Operating Reserve Demand Curve (ORDC) methodology specifically excludes curtailed Photo-Voltaic Generation Resources (PVGRs) in the determination of the ORDC price adders. Since that time, substantial MWs of PVGRs have been installed in ERCOT, a considerable amount of which is being curtailed on a regular basis. This Other Binding Document Revision Request (OBDRR) changes the methodology to consider the additional capacity.
Reason: Addresses current operational issues
