Description: This Nodal Protocol Revision Request (NPRR) clarifies references to the Texas Reliability Entity (Texas RE) and the Independent Market Monitor (IMM). The Nodal Protocols currently refer to the Texas Reliability Entity in both its capacity as the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) Regional Entity and the Public Utility Commission of Texas (PUCT) Reliability Monitor, a new term recently added to P.U.C SUBST. R. § 25.503, Oversight of Wholesale Market Participants. This NPRR modifies uses of the term “Texas Reliability Entity” to more accurately reflect distinct references to the NERC Regional Entity and the PUCT Reliability Monitor, and introduces the defined term “Reliability Monitor” per P.U.C SUBST. R. § 25.503. This NPRR also removes the 24-hour deadline by which ERCOT must notify the Reliability Monitor of a failure to provide Ancillary Services, and clarifies that the IMM is an included party in several provisions related to the ERCOT stakeholder process.
Reason: This NPRR aligns the ERCOT Nodal Protocols with current regulatory requirements.
