Failure to Comply, Version 9

Effective: 05/19/2014


Version 10 is out for comment through September 16, 2014 on the Out for Comment and Responsewebpage under Business Practices Currently Out for Comment.

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 9, Section B.3.a of the Failure to Comply Business Practice has been revised to establish a methodology for generators to submit replacement schedules for curtailed schedules in order to avoid incurring FTC penalty charges. Specifically, when resources submit new schedules or increase existing schedules in amounts that are greater than or equal to the curtailed amount of another concurrent schedule, then the resource will not be subject to FTC penalty charges for that scheduling interval. All new schedules or requested schedule increases must be approved prior to the close of the corresponding schedule window. This is intended to allow resources to re-market or otherwise schedule output in a manner that avoids curtailed transmission paths and avoids incurring FTC penalty charges for generation that exceeds approved schedules. Example 6 has been revised to demonstrate this situation.
