2023 Flexible Capacity Needs Assessment Process: Data Submission Deadline 1/15/22
The California ISO has posted the data request template to collect data for conducting its 2023 Flexible Capacity Needs assessment. Scheduling coordinators of load serving entities must provide the ISO with the variable energy resources contract data by end of day Saturday, Jan. 15, 2022, using the template. The ISO encourages participants to submit by close of business on Friday, Jan. 14, 2022, so we can verify and perform outreach as needed.
Please submit the data request template using the Customer Inquiry, Dispute and Information (CIDI) ticket process with “2023 Annual Flex RA Submission” in the subject line. The template, as well as all related material, are available on the Flexible Capacity Needs Assessment Process webpage. Please note the additional instructions and examples regarding hybrid and co-located resource types.
Late submissions are subject to a $500 per day penalty under section 37.6.1 of the ISO tariff.
The ISO uses the assessment to determine the quantity of flexible capacity needed for the upcoming resource adequacy year and how this quantity is allocated to local regulatory authorities (see tariff section 40.10.1 for additional detail regarding the ISO study).
Note: The Business Practice Manuals and ISO Tariff are the official records for due dates.
