Description: In this Operating Guide Revision Request (OGRR) Qualified Scheduling Entity (QSE) Managers Working Group is requesting to modify the ERCOT Operating Guides requirement mandating that the ERCOT Responsive Reserve Obligation is 2300 MW. The request is to increase the Responsive Reserve Obligation to 2800 MW. QSE Managers Working Group does not recommend modifying the MW thresholds for which Alerts or Emergency Electric Curtailment Plan (EECP) action is taken.
Reason: QSE Managers Working Group believes that this requested revision to the ERCOT Operating Guides, coupled with requested revisions to the ERCOT Protocols addressing administrative price adjustments, will benefit the market by allowing market forces to correctly set market prices before ERCOT command and control action is necessary for reliability purposes.
