Description: This Nodal Protocol Revision Request (NPRR) adds to the Short-Term System Adequacy Report a field showing the aggregate Generation Resource capacity that is schedule in the Current Operating Plan (COP) as "Off" and can be started in time to be available each Operating Hour.
Reason: Showing the capacity that is Off-Line but available to the market will provide far better transparency for Resources that are making decisions on whether to commit units or for Loads that are making decisions to purchase from the market or sources outside of the ERCOT market.
