On October 4, 2017, ERCOT received Notifications of Suspension of Operations (NSOs) for the following Generation Resources: CITY OF GARLAND (RE) - Spencer (SPNCE_4) and Spencer (SPNCE_5)
The proposed effective date for the suspension of CITY OF GARLAND (RE) - Spencer (SPNCE_4) and Spencer (SPNCE_5) is January 3, 2018.
Pursuant to requirements under ERCOT Protocols Section 126.96.36.199 (3), ERCOT issued an initial determination that these Generation Resources are not required to support ERCOT transmission system reliability. Pursuant to Section 188.8.131.52 (5), ERCOT's notice will also serve as the final determination, and the Resources may be mothballed indefinitely according to the schedules in the NSOs.
The NSOs had indicated that both Resources will suspend operations indefinitely on January 3, 2018.
The NSOs had indicated that Spencer (SPNCE_4) has a summer Seasonal Net Max Sustainable Rating of 57 MW, and a summer Seasonal Net Minimum Sustainable Rating of 15 MW, and that Spencer (SPNCE_5) has a summer Seasonal Net Max Sustainable Rating of 61 MW, and a summer Seasonal Net Minimum Sustainable Rating of 15 MW.
