ERCOT issued a market notice stating that, "ERCOT anticipates high system demand tomorrow, July 8, 2022, through Monday, July 11, 2022, due to extreme hot temperatures across the ERCOT region."
"To ensure all possible generation is available to serve system demand, ERCOT has requested that the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) exercise its enforcement discretion with respect to generator exceedances of TCEQ air permit limitations. TCEQ has communicated to ERCOT that it will use its enforcement discretion in evaluating generation facility exceedances of emission and operational permit limits to maximize generation availability during this period of concern.," ERCOT said in the notice
"TCEQ’s enforcement discretion will apply beginning at noon (12 p.m.) tomorrow, July 8, 2022," ERCOT said in the notice
"Unless TCEQ provides notice otherwise, the period of enforcement discretion will continue until ERCOT issues a Market Notice indicating that ERCOT’s request for enforcement discretion has ended," ERCOT said in the notice
