Urgent: No
Sections: 3.19.1
Description: This Nodal Protocol Revision Request (NPRR) clarifies Nodal Protocol language on the obligation to provide ERCOT designated decision-making authority over Resources when considering pricing safeguards and when testing for competitiveness in resolving system constraints. The NPRR aligns Nodal Protocol language with the Public Utility Commission of Texas (PUCT) Order adopting P.U.C. Subst. R. 25.502(e), Pricing Safeguards in Markets Operated by the Electric Reliability Council of Texas.
Reason: Clarification is needed to align Resource Entities obligation to designate decision-making authority of Resources they own or represent with P.U.C. Subst. R. 25.502(e).
