    Background

    Status: Approved
    Date Posted: 08/22/2012
    Sponsor: ERCOT
    Urgent: No
    Sections: 10.1, 10.4.5, 10.4.8, 10.4.10, 10.4.11
    Description: This Settlement Metering Operating Guide Revision Request (SMOGRR) aligns the SMOG with Nodal Protocol Revision Request (NPRR) 454, Removal of Unfunded Project List Language, approved by the ERCOT Board on 7/17/12, which removed language regarding the Unfunded Project List. This SMOGRR also aligns the SMOG with the Protocols by requiring ERCOT’s opinion in the TAC Report for any SMOGRR requiring an ERCOT project for implementation; and includes administrative alignment changes. In addition, this SMOGRR modifies the scope of the Administrative SMOGRR definition to include revisions for the purpose of maintaining consistency between Section 10, Process for Settlement Metering Operating Guide Revisions, and Protocol Section 21, Revision Request Process.
    Reason: Alignment with the Protocols by removing language regarding the Unfunded Project List and including ERCOT’s opinion in TAC Reports. In addition, allowing SMOGRRs that are for the purpose of alignment with Protocol Section 21 to proceed as Administrative SMOGRRs significantly decreases the amount of work and meeting time that must be devoted to these routine SMOGRRs.
