This Nodal Protocol Revision Request (NPRR) provides an option for a renewable All-Inclusive Generation Resource to self-report quarterly MWh production data to ERCOT for use in the Renewable Energy Credit (REC) Program. In addition, this NPRR establishes metering requirements for any renewable All-Inclusive Generation Resource choosing to self-report MWh production data for use in the REC Trading Program.
This NPRR aligns the Protocols with P.U.C. Subst. R. 25.173, Goal for Renewable Energy, in regards to awarding RECs to renewable All-Inclusive Generation Resources for MWh production. Metering that is located at the ERCOT Point of Interconnection (POI) records net energy flows and there are instances in which the output from a renewable All-Inclusive Generation Resource serves on-site Load. If generation data is in the ERCOT Settlement systems for a renewable All-Inclusive Generation Resource, current Protocol language has a requirement that the data be utilized for awarding RECs. In instances where on-site Load is being served by the renewable All-Inclusive Generation Resource, the data in ERCOT Settlement systems would not account for all the MWh production data.
