Sponsor: Kathy Scott on behalf of the IDR Meter Protocol Requirement Threshold Workshop
Urgent: No
Sections: 18.6.1
Description: This Nodal Protocol Revision Request (NPRR) increases the Interval Data Recorder (IDR) Meter mandatory installation requirement from 700 kW/kVA to 1.5 MW/MVA. In stakeholder discussions during the joint RMS/COPS IDR Meter Protocol Requirement Threshold Workshops, there were concerns expressed regarding the elimination of the mandatory IDR Meter threshold. These concerns included: unknown and known impacts to Transmission and/or Distribution Service Providers (TSDPs) based upon their current Tariff concerning the application and invoicing of 4CP, unknown impacts to current 4CP Demand response volumes; and impacts to ERCOT’s Load forecasting processes unless these Loads were identified by a new profile assignment. Task Force participants indicated a desire that new profile codes not be introduced due to the cost impacts to their organizations resulting from IT development, testing, and implementation of multiple new Load Profiles when that may not be the best use of budget dollars. Additional concerns related to establishing a separate threshold for the evaluation of non-IDR Metered Premises and Advanced Metering System (AMS) Metered Premises. There was concern that language would be confusing to manage; recognition that the majority of Premises have AMS Meters and the subset of non-IDR Metered Premises are very limited; and understanding and willingness during IDR Required Threshold Workshop V to have any non-IDR with a Demand up to 1.5 MW/MVA settled on a Load Profile.
Reason: Market efficiencies or enhancements
