ERCOT has issued a Reliability analysis determination for the City of Garland, Gibbons Creek Generating Station (GIBCRK_GIB_CRG1), given the Notification of Suspension of Operations submitted for the unit.
As previously reported, on December 21, 2018, ERCOT received a Notification of Suspension of Operations (NSO) for the following Generation Resource: City of Garland – GIBCRK_GIB_CRG1
The NSO had indicated that the Generation Resource will be mothballed indefinitely beginning June 1, 2019. Pursuant to a previous NSO filed on April 30, 2018, this Resource has been mothballed since October 1, 2018, and, under the April 30, 2018 NSO, was previously expected to be mothballed for a period of not less than 7 months and not greater than 8 months.
Pursuant to ERCOT Protocol Sections 184.108.40.206(4) and (5), ERCOT has completed its reliability analysis and has determined that this Generation Resource is not required to support ERCOT transmission system reliability and may suspend operations according to the schedule in the NSO.
