This Nodal Protocol Revision Request (NPRR) ensures that Qualified Scheduling Entities (QSEs) representing Generation Resources that have an executed and enforceable transportation contract and file a Settlement dispute to recover their actual fuel costs incurred when instructed to operate due to a RUC, procure fuel economically. This NPRR also adds an adjustment to the RUC Guarantee to reflect the cost difference between the actual fuel consumed by the Resource to start and operate during the RUC-Committed Intervals and the fuel burn calculated based on Verifiable Cost parameters. Finally, the NPRR clarifies that fuel costs may also include penalties for fuel delivery outside of RUC-Committed Intervals in accordance with the ratable delivery obligations and costs as specified in the enforceable transportation agreement.
