Status: Approved

Sponsor: ERCOT
Urgent: No
Sections: 2.2, 7.1,, 7.5.1,,, 7.7 (delete), 7.8,,
Description: This Nodal Protocol Revision Request (NPRR) removes the unique congestion management procedures for the McCamey Area from the Nodal Protocols, consistent with zonal Protocol revisions made pursuant to Protocol Revision Request (PRR) 810, Remove McCamey Congestion Management, which was approved by the ERCOT Board on August 18, 2009. This NPRR removes all mention of McCamey Flowgate Rights (MCFRIs) while leaving intact the description of Flowgate Rights (FGRs) and related Settlement equations.
Reason: This NPRR is needed to synchronize the Nodal Protocols with the zonal Protocols as revised by PRR810. As stated in PRR810, the need to manage Congestion related to high levels of wind generation is no longer unique to the McCamey Area. Line and voltage equipment upgrades in the McCamey Area have greatly increased the capability to export generation from the area.
