Sections: 2.1, 14.2, 14.3.1, 14.3.2, 14.4, 14.5.1, 14.5.2, 14.7, 14.9, 14.9.1, 14.9.2,, 14.9.4, 14.9.5, 14.10.1, 14.10.2, 14.11, 14.12, 14.13
Description: This Nodal Protocol Revision Request (NPRR) addresses language clean up and inconsistencies in the current Nodal Protocol language that are out of alignment with current processes, Public Utility Commission of Texas (PUCT) Substantive Rules, and system design. The following is an outline of changes in the various sections: Section 2 – Modifies the definition of Designated Representative to accurately reflect the use of this term. This term is only used in reference to a Renewable Energy Credit (REC) Account; Section 14.3.1 – Adds clarifying language and language modifications on the type of Agreement required to be REC Account Holder and that the Agreement is binding on the REC Account Holder; Section 14.3.2 – Adds a descriptive sentence for the table and update the defined field length for the creation of a REC and Compliance Premium to be consistent with system design; Section 14.3.2 and 14.10.1 – Removes dates that are expressive of a start time for initial implementation and no longer need to be defined in Protocols; Section 14.4 – Clarifies that language for ERCOT to close a REC Account that holds no RECs or Compliance Premiums for a period of one year is not mandatory; Section 14.5.1 – Replaces Resource Facility with REC generator for consistency of the section. Resource is specific to a Generation Resource and the section applies to All-Inclusive Generation Resource which includes Non-Modeled generators; Section 14.7 – Updates when transfer requests are effective based on current system design; Section 14.9 – Removes erroneous stop date for the allocation of the RPS mandate to retail entities. Public Utility Regulatory Act (PURA) and PUCT Substantive Rule language have no references to a stop date for this activity; and Section 14.12 – Updates naming of REC aggregator to be consistent with PUCT Substantive Rule language.
Reason: This NPRR addresses language clean up and inconsistencies in the current Protocol language that are out of alignment with current processes, PUCT Substantive Rules, and system design.
