Description: This Nodal Protocol Revision Request (NPRR) requires ERCOT to use an Outage Adjustment Evaluation (OAE) process to delay accepted or approved Outages after issuing an Advance Action Notice (AAN) to describe the need and providing time for Qualified Scheduling Entities (QSEs) to adjust their Outage plans. A Resource that receives an Outage Schedule Adjustment (OSA) as a result of an OAE will be made whole to its actual costs incurred due to delaying or canceling and rescheduling the Outage and committing the Resource, as appropriate. In addition, it sets an offer floor for the Resource at $4,500/MWh. Together, these changes will encourage Resources to self-commit to avoid the opportunity cost of offering at a very high price, while making them whole if they do follow ERCOT’s instructions. A QSE with a Resource that is unable to return to service due to reliability reasons may update its Outage to a Forced Outage so that it may continue its Outage plans to support the Resource’s longevity and availability during critical Load periods.
Reason: Addresses current operational issues. Meets Strategic goals. Market efficiencies or enhancements.
