Sections:, RMR Payment for Energy
Description: This Nodal Protocol Revision Request (NPRR) incorporates language from the COMS Eligibility Process for Settlements Requirements (B2) (v3.0) (Eligibility Process) document approved by the Transition Plan Task Force (TPTF) on October 8, 2007. The proposed language is consistent with the language in the Eligibility Process to determine if a Reliability Must Run (RMR) Unit is to be compensated for its startup costs as well as Protocol Sections 5.6.2, RUC Startup Cost Eligibility, and 5.6.3, Forced Outage of a RUC-Committed Resource.
Reason: The Nodal Protocols need provisions for the determination of eligibility for compensation for startup costs in the event of multiple starts in a day from the Day Ahead Market (DAM) and Reliability Unit Commitment (RUC) markets.
