Distributed Energy Resources to Earn Compensation from ERCOT

As reported by PV Magazine, owners of solar + storage at their homes could qualify for additional compensation from their retail electric providers. Companies like Tesla, Shell Energy, and David Energy plan to offer products in the ERCOT retail market so that their customers can provide grid services to ERCOT and receive compensation or a lower energy bill. Although Texas’ ERCOT grid is not regulated by FERC, this demonstrates voluntarily compliance with FERC Order #2222 – and ERCOT is moving more quickly than other ISOs to integrate these devices into their market design. Goff Policy has played an active role in this issue area.
