LP&L’s Integration into ERCOT: New Power Contract and Questions from ERCOT

Mar 27, 2017

On 3/23/17, ERCOT filed with the PUCT a letter in Lubbock Power & Light’s integration project, asking questions on what data may be provided to LP&L for required studies. Specifically, ERCOT is seeking approval of a confidentiality agreement that would allow it to share with LP&L certain generator-specific  data. The ISO stated that it has concluded that it would be appropriate to provide such data to LP&L representatives in advance of the anticipated contested case, because these are data that ERCOT is using in preparing its Commission-requested study and may also be necessary for any similar study conducted by LP&L. ERCOT has asked that the Commission consider this issue at its 3/30/17 open meeting.

On 3/24/17, Platts reported that “Southwestern Public Service has agreed to sell 400MW to Lubbock Power & Light as part of the municipal utility’s planned shift from the Southwest Power Pool” to ERCOT. The contract may postpone LP&L’s move to ERCOT from 2019 to 2021
