DAY AFFECTED:  September 30, 2016

LONG DESCRIPTION:  On December 1, 2015, ERCOT received a Notification of Suspension of Operations (NSO) for the following Generation Resources:


The proposed effective date for the suspension of FRONTERA_FRONTEG1, FRONTERA_FRONTEG2, FRONTERA_FRONTEG3, FRONTERA_CC1 is September 30, 2016, unless the Lobo-North Edinburg (with series capacitors) and North Edinburg – Loma Alta (Cross Valley) 345 kV lines are not energized by that date, in which case the effective date of the suspension is the earlier of the date both lines are energized or November 30, 2016. 

ERCOT has completed its review and is issuing its initial determination that these Resources are not required to support ERCOT transmission system reliability (i.e. voltage support, stability or management of localized transmission constraints under first contingency criteria). Pursuant to Section, this Market Notice will also serve as ERCOT’s final determination that the Resources may be decommissioned and retired according to the schedule in the NSO.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:  In support of this determination, ERCOT has posted the analysis on the Generation page of the Market Information System (MIS) Secure Area.  An ERCOT Digital Certificate is required to access the MIS.
