Date Posted: Sep 12, 2014
Sponsor: ERCOT
Urgent: No
Sections: 1.3.1.1, 4.6.5, 6.5.7.1.10, 6.5.7.1.13, 6.6.3.9 (new), 6.6.3.10 (new), 6.6.5.1, 9.5.3
Description: This Nodal Protocol Revision Request (NPRR) proposes a compensation mechanism for Generation Resources that are issued a High Dispatch Limit (HDL) manual override that results in a real power reduction (subject to certain criteria). The proposed mechanism compensates the Qualified Scheduling Entity (QSE) for financial loss associated with variable cost components of Day-Ahead Market (DAM) obligations or bilateral contracts arising from the HDL manual override. ERCOT submits this NPRR to satisfy its obligations under a settlement agreement reached with Odessa Ector Power Partners, LP in Public Utility Commission of Texas (PUCT) Docket 41790. ERCOT’s submission of this NPRR does not imply ERCOT’s support for or opposition to the principles stated in this NPRR.
Reason: Submitted pursuant to settlement agreement.
