SHORT DESCRIPTION:  ERCOT will host a workshop on Resource Entity owned Transmission Facility outage submittal (NPRR 219)   


DAY AFFECTED:  Wednesday, November 17, 2010, 09:00 – 15:00 (CST)                       

LONG DESCRIPTION:  Nodal Protocol Revision Request (NPRR) 219 establishes ERCOT as the responsible Entity that will submit Outage Scheduler entries for Resource Entity owned Transmission Facilities at the start of the nodal market on December 1, 2010. This process will be required from the start of the nodal market until system changes on the Outage Scheduler application are completed that will allow Resource Entities to submit this information into the Outage Scheduler on their own.

In conjunction with the implementation of NPRR 219, ERCOT is hosting a Market Participant workshop on the outage submittal process to explain the procedures to be followed by ERCOT and Market Participants along with the required forms and related information for the submission of outages on Resource Entity owned Transmission Facilities during the transition period.
