Background

Status: Approved
Date Posted: Apr 13, 2015
Sponsor: ERCOT
Urgent: No
Sections: 1.3.1.1, 2.1, and 3.14.1.9
Description: This Nodal Protocol Revision Request (NPRR) requires ERCOT to post all Notifications of Suspension of Operations (except those for units on Forced Outage) and all Notifications of Change of Generation Resource Designation to the Market Information System (MIS) Secure Area and to issue a Market Notice within five Business Days of receipt. Because the Protocols already require ERCOT to post and provide notice of these notifications in almost all cases, this NPRR would effectively extend this requirement only to retirements of Mothballed Generation Resources and to RMR Units that would otherwise be mothballed upon expiration of the RMR Agreement. Requiring ERCOT to give notice of all retirements will provide additional transparency to the market and transmission planners. This NPRR also clarifies that retirements of Generation Resources are subject to the modeling timelines in Section 3.10.1, Time Line for Network Operations Model Changes. Finally, this NPRR proposes revisions to address the Protected Information status of information concerning Mothballed Generation Resources and to clarify the definitions of Decommissioned Generation Resource and Mothballed Generation Resource.
Reason: Market efficiencies or enhancements. Provides additional transparency to the market and to transmission planners concerning future availability of generation
