Urgent: Yes
Sections: 2.1, 9.5.2, 9.5.4, 9.5.5,
Description: This NPRR proposes a phased approach to change the posting date for the Real-Time Market (RTM) Initial Settlement Statement from seven days after the Operating Day to five days after the Operating Day and changes the posting date of the Final Settlement Statement from the 57th day after the Operating Day to the 55th day after the Operating Day.
Reason: This NPRR addresses concerns raised in regards to the impact of the increase to the high SWCAP pursuant to the adoption of amendments to P.U.C. Subst. R. 25.505. COPS held two workshops, on 8/29/13 and 9/10/13, to discuss how to reduce the RTM Settlement timeline further, given the successful implementation of NPRR509, Shortened RTM Settlement Timeline. Market Participants reached a compromise to continue with a two phased approach as in NPRR509 with an objective of RTM Initial Settlement on Operating Day plus five by 6/1/2014. COPS continues to discuss aspects related to impacts, tradeoffs, benefits, and potential solutions for RTM Settlement on a faster timeline.
