NYGATS will conduct an automatic electricity production data validity check, in order to assure that erroneous and technically infeasible data is not entered into NYGATS. The data validity check will compare reported electricity production to an engineering estimate of maximum potential production, calculated as a function of Nameplate Capacity, typical capacity factor, and duration (time period the generation data covers). If data reported exceeds an estimate of technically feasible generation by more than 2%, the NYGATS Administrator will require the Account Holder to submit either settlement reports or hourly meter readings to verify the reported generation.
The Account Holder will be notified via email if the Qualified Independent Party has loaded data that failed the Validity Check. The Account holder can review the reported generation from the Project Management Module's Review Data/Self-Report column. The date displayed in this column is the last vintage loaded.
The Status of the reported generation will be displayed in the Feasibility column of the data review screen.
