Description: This Nodal Protocol Revision Request (NPRR) clarifies that Direct Current Tie (DC Tie) exports are to be treated as Load.
Reason: The Protocols are written to settle (charge) DC Tie exports as Load. However DC Tie exports are not being treated as Load from an operations perspective. DC Tie exports should receive the service that they pay for.
