Sponsor: ERCOT
Urgent: No
Description: This Nodal Protocol Revision Request (NPRR) changes the need to issue Dispatch Instructions to suspend any ongoing ERCOT-required generating unit or Resource performance testing and moves the requirement to inquire about the availability of Block Load Transfers (BLTs) from Energy Emergency Alert (EEA) Level 2A to EEA Level 2B.
Reason: The changes to the EEA process will allow ERCOT to be more efficient in making Hotline calls to Qualified Scheduling Entities (QSEs).
