Congestion Revenue Rights Account Holder

A Congestion Revenue Right (CRR) Account Holder is an entity that is registered and qualified to become the owner of record of CRRs in the nodal market.

The CRR is a financial instrument that entitles the CRR owner to be charged or to receive compensation for congestion rents that arise when the ERCOT transmission grid is congested in the Day-Ahead Market (DAM) or the Real-Time Market (RTM). A CRR does not represent a right to receive, or obligation to deliver, physical energy.


To register with ERCOT as a CRR Account Holder, an entity must submit:

  • Congestion Revenue Right (CRR) Account Holder Application for Registration 
  • Annual Certification Form to Meet ERCOT Additional Minimum Participation Requirements 
  • Applicable fee

Note: The application must be submitted at least 15 days before the first day of participation in the CRR auction process or purchase of CRRs.
