INTENDED AUDIENCE: RMS and Affected Market Participants

DAYS AFFECTED: March 9, 2021

LONG DESCRIPTION: On Tuesday, March 9, 2021, ERCOT revoked all rights of POWER OF TEXAS HOLDINGS INC to conduct activity under the ERCOT Protocols due to its failure to designate a new Qualified Scheduling Entity (QSE) or qualify as an Emergency QSE pursuant to the ERCOT Protocols.

ERCOT Protocol Section 16.11.6.1.6.(3)(b) provides that if a breaching Market Participant is also a Load Serving Entity (LSE), then “on revocation of some or all of the Market Participant’s agreements… ERCOT shall initiate a Mass Transition of the Market Participant’s ESI IDs pursuant to Section 15.1.3.1, Mass Transition Process…”

Pursuant to Protocol Section 15.1.3.1, Mass Transition, and Retail Market Guide (RMG) Section 7.11, Mass Customer Transition Process, ERCOT began the Mass Transition of POWER OF TEXAS HOLDINGS INC customers on Tuesday, March 9, 2021.  All POWER OF TEXAS HOLDINGS INC ESI IDs will be gained by one or more POLRs, as allocated by the PUCT Mass Transition process. 

The size of the associated combined 30 day Average Daily Load is approximately 208 MWHs and the number of ESI IDs involved is approximately 3.

ERCOT has been working closely with PUCT staff and Affected Market Participants to ensure an efficient and effective transfer of Customers to designated POLRs.
