This Nodal Protocol Revision Request (NPRR) accomplishes two objectives related to mapping registered Distributed Generation (DG) and Load Resources to transmission Loads in the Network Operations Model. Specifically, this NPRR expands paragraph (2) of Section 220.127.116.11 to codify the existing process for mapping a Load Resource or an Aggregate Load Resource (ALR) to its appropriate Load point in the Network Operations Model; and outlines in a new paragraph (3) of Section 18.104.22.168 the practice for mapping a registered DG facility to its appropriate Load point in the Network Operations Model. These changes would affect all existing and future DG facilities that have registered or will register with ERCOT pursuant to paragraph (5) of Section 16.5, Registration of a Resource Entity. DG registration is required for any DG facility with a capacity rating above the registration threshold, currently set at 1 MW, and which injects energy to the distribution grid. Registration with ERCOT is optional for smaller DG facilities.
