    Description: This Planning Guide Revision Request (PGRR) adds new Section 4, Planning Criteria to the Planning Guide.
    Reason: The proposed language currently exists in Section 4, Planning, of the Nodal Operating Guides that contains specific policies and requirements that are directly related to transmission planning of the ERCOT System and thus are appropriate for inclusion in the new Planning Guide. The Planning Guide is being developed as requested by the Reliability and Operations Subcommittee (ROS) and the Technical Advisory Committee (TAC).
