This LPGRR creates a new subsection to document a process for ERCOT Staff submittal and stakeholder approval of annual updates to the Profile Decision Tree. It specifies that other revisions shall be submitted through the revision process described in Section 2, Load Profiling Revision Process, and allows for ERCOT Staff to use administrative LPGRRs for certain types of revisions. This LPGRR also incorporates the Profile Decision Tree as an appendix to the Load Profiling Guide.This LPGRR also provides clarification in regards to Load Profile assignments for Non-ERCOT ESI IDs.
Currently no formally documented stakeholder approval process exists for any revisions to the Profile Decision Tree. Such revisions can have significant impact on the ERCOT settlement process and should be subjected to stakeholder approval.
