“[by date]” – ISO cannot accept this change. RMR contracts can start at any time during the year, once a contract is in place the ISO will be issuing RMR credits for future months; therefore there is no single date and there could be multiple dates across the year at unspecified times.

“and ensure alignment with the CPUC’s allocation of RMR credits” – ISO cannot accept this change. The language is duplicative of one found in the same paragraph that states “the CAISO will reflect the revised allocation in its systems prospectively”. To be clear ISO will not accept any CPUC re-allocation of RMR credits above the amount previously submitted from the ISO to CPUC for re-allocation. Furthermore Section 41.8 of the CAISO tariff describes how the CAISO allocates the credits and also described the CPUC role. PG&E’s suggestion would require tariff modification.

“eligible NQC of the RMR Resource Contract capacity” – ISO cannot accept this change since as is because the credits can also be for flexible capacity and EFC credits do not equal NQC. However the ISO acknowledges that the original language need to be modified to avoid confusion. ISO is proposed new language: “eligible and applicable RA capacity (like NQC or EFC) of the RMR resource”.
