Sponsor: ERCOT
Urgent: No
Sections: 2.1, 3.14.3,,,,,,
Description: This Nodal Protocol Revision Request (NPRR) proposes several modifications to the Nodal Protocols relating to EILS. The four changes proposed in this NPRR that ERCOT considers to be most important are as follows: · Amends Section 3.14.3, specifically paragraphs (8)(b), (c) and (d), and Sections and to correct a Settlement inequity for Qualified Scheduling Entities (QSEs) providing EILS through Self-Provision. · Amends Section, specifically paragraph (2)(b), to provide ERCOT with an important option for accommodating EILS Loads potentially consisting of large aggregations of Customers with Advanced Meters. · Amends paragraph (7)(f) of Section 3.14.3 to remove the requirement that EILS capacity offers must be submitted in whole MW amounts. · Adds a new paragraph (5)(e) to Section to define a mechanism for ERCOT to reduce the payment for an EILS Load that fails two consecutive Load-shed tests in an EILS Contract Period. In addition, this NPRR proposes additional modifications related to EILS that ERCOT considers to be clarifying in nature. For additional detail regarding the revisions proposed in this NPRR, please see "Comments" section of NPRR submission form (Key Documents tab).
Reason: Equity in EILS Settlement, avoidance of a potentially burdensome requirement on ERCOT, and additional clarity on several other minor issues.
