__________ Nov 20, 2014 post:

The ISO held a stakeholder meeting on November 12, 2014 to kick off a new initiative called Commitment Cost Enhancements Phase 2.  The objective of this initiative is to develop a methodology for calculating opportunity costs allowing use-limited resources to use the resulting opportunity cost adder in conjunction with the proxy cost option.  Once implemented, the ISO will eliminate the registered cost option.  This initiative also addresses other commitment cost related issues.

During the meeting, the ISO  also discussed a Reliability Services initiative topic where the resource adequacy tariff language and rules need to change in order to accommodate the new use-limited definition. This definition will impact resource adequacy rules related to generating bids and residual unit commitment participation.

The Commitment Cost Enhancements Phase 2 straw proposal  discussed during the meeting is available on the ISO website at http://www.caiso.com/Documents/StrawProposal_CommitmentCostEnhancementsPhase2.pdf. More information on the Reliability Services initiative is available at http://www.caiso.com/informed/Pages/StakeholderProcesses/ReliabilityServices.aspx.
