See ERCOT Protocol Section 16.2.1(3) for a QSE and Protocol Section 16.8.1(2) for a CRRAH.
The NPRR 1073 revisions are anticipated to be effective January 1, 2022, and ERCOT will provide a separate Market Notice providing additional information and confirming the effective date at least 10 days before the effective date.
