As required in the Reliability Requirements Business Practice Manual (Section 9), a scheduling coordinator representing a generator that is an Acquired Resource must submit a Customer Inquiry, Dispute and Information (CIDI) ticket addressing the continued eligibility of the resource as an Acquired Resource. An acquired resource is a generating unit with an existing resource adequacy (RA) contract executed prior to June 28, 2009. Acquired resources are not subject to
Resource Adequacy Availability Incentive Mechanism non-availability charges or availability incentive payments.
The CIDI ticket, which must have the title "Acquired Resource 2021 (LSE ID)," should either: (1) confirm that the information provided in the prior eligibility affidavit is still accurate and the Acquired Resource continues to meet the eligibility criteria in the Reliability Requirements Business Practice Manual; or (2) if the Acquired Resource's RA contract has been modified, include an affidavit executed by an executive officer of the generator owner or of the scheduling coordinator itself, who is authorized to bind the company legally and financially, and sworn under oath or affirmation that the modified contract meets the criteria in the California ISO Tariff. An updated affidavit is not required under the first option.
The CIDI ticket must be submitted for the contract to continue to be exempt from the Resource Adequacy Availability Incentive Mechanism non-availability charges or availability incentive payments.
Scheduling coordinators must submit the required information to the ISO in CIDI by the last business day in October; however the ISO recommends submitting as soon as possible to allow time to handle any questions/discrepancies.If a scheduling coordinator does not submit a CIDI ticket by the deadline they will lose their status as an Acquired Resource.
