Sponsor: ERCOT
Urgent: No
Description: This Nodal Protocol Revision Request (NPRR) will provide flexibility for Counter-Parties to increase the credit limit available for the Day-Ahead Market (DAM) on the day the DAM is running by posting additional Financial Security under certain circumstances after ERCOT has already set a daily credit limit.
Reason: Although ERCOT has business processes in place on the timing of when it sets the daily credit limit for the next day’s DAM for each Counter-Party, ERCOT could update the credit limit for a Counter-Party if time and resource constraints are not an issue. As such, this NPRR codifies the circumstances in which ERCOT may be able to adjust the credit limit for a Counter-Party for the current day DAM. Please note that ERCOT plans to continue to process Financial Security as it does currently on Business Days.
