Description: This Nodal Protocol Revision Request (NPRR) proposes numerous minor changes to the Emergency Response Service (ERS). Those changes include: • Changes to the Resource identification process that clarifies ERCOT’s role in identifying baselines available to each site for Qualified Scheduling Entities (QSEs) to choose from. • Change outdated ERS nomenclature (e.g, replace Contract Period with Standard Contract Term) where appropriate. • Change deadline for QSEs to submit notice of ERS Load unavailability deadline from five Business Days to three calendar days. • Change deadline for QSEs to revise planned maintenance or self-test schedules for ERS Generators from five Business Days to three calendar days. • Change the testing exemption for an ERS Resource that successfully completes a test or meets its performance obligations during an ERS deployment event from 365 days to 330 days to provide ERCOT with flexibility to schedule and complete tests within a one year maximum time period. • Specify metering options for sites with Distributed Renewable Generation (DRG). • Other clarifying improvements.
Reason: Addresses current operation issues.
