Urgent: No
Sections: 3.14.1,
Description: The Nodal Protocol Revision Request (NPRR) modifies provisions that relate to Reliability Must-Run (RMR) analysis to require that transmission planning analysis is performed to ensure reliability while minimizing the need for RMR Units.
Reason: The revisions proposed in this NPRR are necessary to ensure sufficient transmission analysis is performed and a hierarchy of solutions is considered to ensure reliable service when Generation Resources cease operation in a transmission-constrained area, including, as a last resort, the availability of sufficient Generation Resources.
