Urgent: No
Sections: This LPGRR includes numerous changes within the Load Profiling Guide. Please see the LPGRR submission form under "Key Documents" for a complete list of impacted Sections.
Description: With the proliferation of Advanced Metering Systems (AMS) in the ERCOT market, this Load Profiling Guide Revision Request (LPGRR) provides a comprehensive review of the Load Profiling Guide (LPG) and makes the following changes: • Updates language to clarify purpose and definitions; • Updates current processes and methodologies; and • Removes outdated processes and practices. Much of the removed language was originally created when the retail market deregulated and outlined the theories and approaches utilized for the initial development of Load Profile assignments for non-interval Electronic Service Identifiers (ESI IDs). As the market has matured, particularly with the deployment of AMS, such detailed explanation of creating Load Profiling Methodologies and processes are no longer utilized.
Reason: Addresses current operational issues, meets strategic goals, market efficiencies or enhancements, and administrative.
