Date Posted: Jun 22, 2023

Description: This NPRR is the first of two NPRRs that ERCOT has prepared to improve the awareness, accounting, and monitoring of the State of Charge (SOC) for an ESR. This particular NPRR is for the interim period which is described as the time period before the RTC+B project goes live. The target go-live date for the RTC+B project is expected to be several years away and the language and changes in this first NPRR are aimed to strategically improve SOC awareness, accounting, and monitoring with minimal system changes so that the improvements can be in place while the RTC+B project is completed. This NPRR does NOT specify that ERCOT manage the SOC for an ESR. It specifies existing and new information to be provided by the QSE so that ERCOT can better understand each ESR’s current energy capability and expected energy capability in future hours. Grey-boxed language related to DC-Coupled Resources was not revised with this NPRR.
Reason: Addresses current operational issues / Meets Strategic goals / Market efficiencies or enhancements
