The California ISO is postponing deployment of Phase 1 of its commitment cost and default energy bid enhancements (CCDEBE) scheduled for Jan. 28, 2021, to conduct additional validation and testing.
The ISO plans to complete this work and implement phase 1 of CCDEBE on or before Feb. 24, 2021. Currently, the ISO is completing its testing of recent fixes to defects identified in the ISO’s scheduling interface business rules and will then complete additional integration testing for data payloads. After validation of these test results, the ISO will perform a full end-to-end test of phase 1 functionality to mitigate any risk of unexpected results in production.
The ISO will issue a subsequent notice to confirm the actual implementation date at least two days in advance of that date.
