Status: Approved
Date Posted: Oct 31, 2007
Sponsor: Reliant Energy
Urgent: No
Sections: 16.11.5
Description: The revision ensures that ERCOT will receive and accept as sufficient from the Counter-Party, financial statements of the Counter-Party or a guarantor if a guarantee is being provided for the purpose of determining the Counter-Party’s creditworthiness.
Reason: Section 16.11.5 requires a Counter-Party and its guarantor to provide unaudited quarterly and audited annual financial statements to ERCOT for creditworthiness monitoring. Bilateral credit practices typically only require the financial statements of either the contracting entity or the guarantor, as there is only one entity whose creditworthiness is relied upon. Counter-Parties that are subsidiaries of larger organizations generally do not prepare audited financial statements at the subsidiary level, and in many cases, financial statements at the subsidiary level are not prepared at all. This revision conforms the protocols to industry credit practice.
