Emergency Response Service
ERCOT procures Emergency Response Service (ERS) by selecting qualified loads generators (including aggregations of loads and generators) to make themselves available for deployment in an electric grid emergency. ERS is a valuable emergency service designed to decrease the likelihood of the need for firm Load shedding (a.k.a, rolling blackouts.) Customers meeting ERS criteria may offer to provide the service through their qualified scheduling entities (QSEs.)
ERS is authorized by Public Utility Commission Substantive Rule §25.507.
