Reliability must-run and capacity procurement mechanism enhancements

This initiative will review the Reliability Must-Run (RMR) tariff, agreement and process, and will seek to clarify RMR procurement versus backstop procurement under the Capacity Procurement Mechanism (CPM). The initiative is planned in two phases: 1) focus on developing a must-offer obligation for RMR units, and 2) identify potential refinements and strive to unify RMR and CPM under a single procurement framework.
