ERCOT Sample Clauses

ERCOT. DR programs can be used to make clients aware and to encourage them to reduce their electric consumption, through incentives, The Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) started a DR program in 2010 to benefit customers, this program includes residential and industrial clients, and foresees the effective incorporation of renewable sources and batteries to the grid the proposed scenario presents the implementation of a solar panel system with batteries, in urban areas the price of renewable energy is decreasing, especially for solar panels, which are easy to install on the roofs of buildings, do not produce sonic pollution or CO2. For these reasons the solar energy is the reference for the renewable energies in urban areas. On 2010, ERCOT launched a comprehensive nodal market where electric grid congestion information with more than 4000 nodes (Liu, 2014)ERCOT manages 85% of the electric power load in Texas, where they serve 23 million customers, any node give information about the price, the cost at to provide the next megawatt of power, This project is very ambitious and demonstrates that to integrate renewable energy into a grid it is necessary to make DR programs and modernize the grid so that it can be converted into a smart grid. The main goal of ERCOT is to ensure the reliability and manage the operation of the grid. This goal is achieved by encouraging customers to participate as volunteers in ERCOT demand response (DR) programs. To illustrate the financial benefit obtained by the residential customers involved in the ERCOT DR programs, (Liu, 2014) presents three different scenarios of implementing photovoltaic (PV) systems and Li- based batteries for household under the ERCOT's demand response. The first scenario considers that only PVs are installed in the household and that the electricity will be imported from the grid when the PVs cannot produce enough electricity. The second scenario considers that only batteries were installed in the household and that the electricity will be stored in batteries when the Locational Marginal Pricing (LMP) is low. The third scenario considers that both PVs and batteries are installed in the household and that the surplus of electricity generated by PVs is stored in the batteries. The surplus of electricity will be used when the consumption of electricity is higher than the electricity generation, before importing electricity from the grid. Based on the results of the simulation, it has been noticed that i...

Interconnection Customer Authority Consistent with Good Utility Practice, this LGIA, and the CAISO Tariff, the Interconnection Customer may take actions or inactions with regard to the Large Generating Facility or the Interconnection Customer’s Interconnection Facilities during an Emergency Condition in order to (i) preserve public health and safety, (ii) preserve the reliability of the Large Generating Facility or the Interconnection Customer’s Interconnection Facilities,
Interconnection Customer Provided Services The services provided by Interconnection Customer under this LGIA are set forth in Article 9.6 and Article 13.5.1. Interconnection Customer shall be paid for such services in accordance with Article 11.6.
Interconnection for the MPB arrangement shall occur at the BA access tandems in the LATA, unless otherwise agreed to by the Parties.
FERC To the extent, if any, that any portion of the Gathering Systems is an interstate common carrier pipeline subject to the jurisdiction of the FERC (an “Interstate Pipeline”):
Interconnection Service Interconnection Service allows the Interconnection Customer to connect the Large Generating Facility to the Participating TO’s Transmission System and be eligible to deliver the Large Generating Facility’s output using the available capacity of the CAISO Controlled Grid. To the extent the Interconnection Customer wants to receive Interconnection Service, the Participating TO shall construct facilities identified in Appendices A and C that the Participating TO is responsible to construct. Interconnection Service does not necessarily provide the Interconnection Customer with the capability to physically deliver the output of its Large Generating Facility to any particular load on the CAISO Controlled Grid without incurring congestion costs. In the event of transmission constraints on the CAISO Controlled Grid, the Interconnection Customer's Large Generating Facility shall be subject to the applicable congestion management procedures in the CAISO Tariff in the same manner as all other resources.
Interconnection Customer’s Interconnection Facilities The Interconnection Customer shall design, procure, construct, install, own and/or control the Interconnection Customer’s Interconnection Facilities described in Appendix A at its sole expense.
Scope of Interconnection Service 1.3.1 The NYISO will provide Energy Resource Interconnection Service and Capacity Resource Interconnection Service to Interconnection Customer at the Point of Interconnection, subject to the requirements in Attachment 5.
Interconnection Facilities 4.1.1 The Interconnection Customer shall pay for the cost of the Interconnection Facilities itemized in Attachment 2 of this Agreement. The NYISO, in consultation with the Connecting Transmission Owner, shall provide a best estimate cost, including overheads, for the purchase and construction of its Interconnection Facilities and provide a detailed itemization of such costs. Costs associated with Interconnection Facilities may be shared with other entities that may benefit from such facilities by agreement of the Interconnection Customer, such other entities, the NYISO, and the Connecting Transmission Owner.
