Description: This Nodal Protocol Revision Request (NPRR) proposes to use a telemetered snapshot at the start of each Reliability Unit Commitment (RUC) block as a trigger for the adder created by NPRR626, Reliability Deployment Price Adder. In support of this change to the Reliability Deployment Price Adder, this NPRR also changes the process for opting out of RUC Settlement, regardless of the timing of the notification of the RUC, which provides an alternative to the RUC Settlement opt out method approved in NPRR416, Creation of the RUC Resource Buyback Provision, as modified by NPRR679, ONOPTOUT for RUC Given After the Adjustment Period. Clarifications to the definition of RUC Buy-Back Hour are also included.
Reason: Addresses current operational issues, Market efficiencies or enhancements
