Load Profile Guide Modify language in Load Profiling Guides to better represent how Direct Load Control will be implemented in the retail market place. A summary of the requested procedural changes to implement Direct Load Control are: Adding and clarifying detailed Direct Load Control implementation information, Modifying language to be consistent with the revisions made with respect to profiling ESI IDs in Direct Load Control, Minor wording changes coinciding with revisions in Protocols Section 18.7.2
Load Profiling Guides RMS requests TAC approval of proposed changes to Section 16.2 of Load Profiling Guides dealing with Direct Load Control.
Heads Up #1 During Texas SET 1.5 market testing, an existing market participant failed to complete the necessary testing to obtain their 1.5 certification. After much discussion at RMS, PUCT Staff agreed to investigate what actions the Commissioners might take if an existing CR, new CR or an existing TDSP failed to certify.
Heads Up #2 TDSPs and ERCOT have filed and distributed to their trading partners first quarter 2003 Market Metrics. Included were meter readings, enrollments, billing, invoices, customers served by Non-AREPs and REPs in a TDSP territory. Market participants are already fine tuning the measurement formulas, definitions, etc. for the second quarter 2003 filing.
Heads Up #3 RMS formed three new task forces. 810/820: Addressing operational problems with TDSP invoice and CR payments. 810/867: Addressing operational problems with TDSP invoice and the associated usage transactions Transaction Performance Improvement Initiative: Identify processing gaps within Protocols, Tariffs and Substantive Rules; Develop escalation process to ensure timely management of transactions and Develop market mechanism for transaction processing accountability.
