Update on Technical Panel determinations
November 23, 2017
Regulated Settlement (MR-00434) - This amendment submission identifies the need for market rule amendments to ensure consistency with respect to regulated settlement. Regulated settlement is the determining, collecting and remitting of applicable settlement amounts in compliance with the relevant provisions of the Electricity Act, 1998, the Ontario Energy Board Act, 1998, and any related regulations. The proposed amendments will delete market rule references to rural and remote settlement and the debt retirement charge since these charges can be settled under Section 1.2.1 of Chapter 9, consistent with other regulated settlement charges.
Station Service Obligations (MR-00435) - This amendment submission identifies the need for market rule amendments to remove the obligation for registered market participants to identify and provide station service estimates and place the obligation on market participants, consistent with the intent of placing this obligation on the owner of a facility. This change will ensure that the market participant that is the owner of a facility is obligated to comply with the station service provisions in section 2.1A of Chapter 9.
The Technical Panel will review the proposed rule amendments for these items at their January 23, 2018 meeting.
