INT-011-1.1: Intra-Balancing Authority Transaction Identification
4.1.1. Load-Serving Entities
This standard was created in response to a FERC directive in Order 693, paragraph 817: In addition, e-Tagging of such transfers was previously included in INT-001-0 and the Commission is aware that such transfers are included in the e-Tagging logs. In short, the practice already exists, but if this Requirement is removed from INT-001-2, no Reliability Standard would require that such information be provided. We therefore will adopt the directive we proposed in the NOPR and direct the ERO to include a modification to INT-001-2 that includes a Requirement that interchange information must be submitted for all point-to-point transfers entirely within a balancing authority area, including all grandfathered and “non-Order No. 888” transfers.
The transfers within a Balancing Authority Area using Point to Point Transmission Service can impact transmission congestion, and this standard ensures that these transfers are communicated and accounted for in congestion management procedures.
Requirements and Measures
R1. Each Load-Serving Entity that uses Point to Point Transmission Service for intraBalancing Authority Area transfers shall submit a Request for Interchange unless the information about intra-Balancing Authority transfers is included in congestion management procedure(s) via an alternate method. [Violation Risk Factor: Lower] [Time Horizon: Operations Planning, Same-day Operations]
M1. Each Load-Serving Entity subject to R1 shall have evidence, such as dated and timestamped electronic records, documentation of congestion management procedures, or other similar evidence, that a Request for Interchange was submitted for each Point to Point Transmission Service intra-Balancing Authority transfer subject to R1 or that each intra-Balancing Authority transfer subject to R1 was accounted for in congestion management procedure(s) via an alternate method.
