This meeting was mostly focused on non-electric issues, but they did discuss a new project (yet to be fully scoped) that would standardize the distributed generation interconnection process.
- Wholesale Market Design – Commissioner Glotfelty talked about his memo regarding the need to standardize distribution interconnection. (The memo referenced Hunt Energy/Jupiter/Broad Reach’s comments requesting a project addressing distributed generation interconnection processes). All commissioners agreed that there should be a project. McAdams wants added command/control ability for ERCOT into the project. PUC staff will work with commissioner Glotfelty on scoping the project.
- Wholesale Market Design Expert Advice Contractor – Two entities bid on the Wholesale Market Design Expert Advisor Contract (E3 and Potomac). The commission delegated the selection/negotiation process to the Executive Director.
