A NOIE must attest that the Generation Resource for a source Resource Node is owned or controlled by the NOIE or has a contractual commitment for capacity and/or energy with the NOIE. ERCOT will enforce this attestation requirement beginning on Operating Day January 1, 2021.
ACTION REQUIRED: Impacted NOIEs must submit the attestation required by paragraph (3) of Protocol Section 18.104.22.168 on or before October 1, 2020, in order for the attestation to be effective for Operating Days beginning January 1, 2021. The attached form may be used to satisfy the attestation requirement.
