    Background

    Status: Approved
    Date Posted: 07/06/2011
    Sponsor: ERCOT
    Urgent: Yes
    Sections: 7.4.2
    Description: This Nodal Protocol Revision Request (NPRR) clarifies the ability to request refund option Pre-Assigned Congestion Revenue Rights (PCRRs) across high voltage Direct Current Ties (DC Ties).
    Reason: The PCRR refund option is meant to settle at the lesser of the scheduled output of a Generation Resource or the MW value of the PCRR. As the output schedules of Generation Resources that are not in ERCOT are not available to ERCOT, the PCRR refund option is not applicable when the source is on the non-ERCOT side of a DC Tie.
