Main Text

The ISO announces a new stakeholder process, the Voluntary Preferred Resource Auction. The process would establish a voluntary preferred resource capacity auction to advance state preferred resource policy goals, enable the procurement of preferred resources in the local areas affected by the loss of San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS), and assure that preferred resources are configured to meet ISO reliability needs. The proposed annual auction will match buyers and suppliers of preferred resources over a multi-year term. This initiative will have two phases. Phase one will consider an auction that will clear only demand response resources. Phase two will consider adding additional complexity, including allowing multiple preferred resource types to participate.

A stakeholder meeting is scheduled on December 13, 2013 to kick off the initiative and to discuss the combined issue paper and straw proposal, which will be available on the ISO website at http://www.caiso.com/informed/Pages/StakeholderProcesses/VoluntaryPreferredResourceAuction.aspx on December 6.

Please RSVP to SMC@caiso.com by December 11 if you plan to attend the meeting in person. An agenda and presentation will be posted to the website above on December 11.

Stakeholders should submit comments to VPR@caiso.com by close of business December 27.
