2What and WhyThe resource adequacy check is a measure of a regions ability to meet its load requirements at time of peak using resources within each region and transmission constrained imports from neighboring regions.TEPPC uses this check to indicate if there are adequate resources in the dataset as well as a check to not over build the dataset.
