Under Protocols Section 26.2(5), if ERCOT modifies the TSDCMA, it will issue a Market Notice notifying Market Participants of the change no later than 15 days before the beginning of the month in which the new TSDCMA will be used to calculate Securitization Default Charges.  The revised TSDCMA will be used in the calculation of the Securitization Default Charge Ratio Share per Counter-Party (SDCRSCP) beginning with the Invoice for Securitization Default Charges that will be issued on May 9, 2024.  The revised TSDCMA will be used in the calculation of Securitization Default Charge Credit Exposure (SDCCE) beginning on May 6, 2024.
