Failure to Comply, Version 8

Effective: 08/28/13


This Business Practice is out for comment through April 24th, 2014 and is located on the Out for Comment page

The Failure to Comply Business Practice addresses the consequences of non-compliance with Dispatch Orders and how the Failure to Comply Penalty is determined.

Version 8 of the Failure to Comply Business Practice revises the calculation of the FTC Penalty billing factor to include generation limits related to congestion management events. Specifically, if resources are overgenerating relative to scheduled output, and such overgeneration is contributing to an SOL concern, BPA-TS will issue a generator limit(s) for the resource(s) impacting the SOL to reduce output to schedule prior to initiating pro rata curtailments. This is intended to reduce the instances or magnitude of pro rata curtailment events related to SOL concerns. FTC Penalty charges will apply to resources that exceed the generation limit target under these circumstances. A new example has been added to demonstrate this situation. Further, all other example graphs have been clarified for readability.

Additionally, Section B.4.a has been revised to calculate FTC using one-minute intervals as opposed to two-second intervals.
