A New York LSE should take steps to review their NYISO reported Load and Certificate Deposits before June 30th to ensure their EDP Labels will look correct and Verify that their Compliance Requirements are accurate.
Additional background on total NY Load
- The Load for each LSE in NYGATS is the monthly metered load data reported by NYISO and load supplied by New York Small Wholesale Generators reported by distribution utility companies
- The final (V2) NYISO load data is received five months after the month in which the load was served
- The Load is rounded to the nearest MW.
- Energy used to create storage - such as pumping (for hydro) or charging (for flywheels/batteries) - is not part of the LSE Load because it is an intermediate load not used to serve retail load
- The load data is provided by NYISO by Load Name and PTID
- Load modifying Generators (including VDERs) serve on-site load and this data is automatically used to increase an LSE’s total Load –in addition to issuing Certificates.
- Load Adjustmentsare provided by NYSERDA and manually uploaded into the NYGATS.
LSEs can review their reported NYISO load by either accessing the EDP Sub-Account Load or EDP Sub-Account Load report (both reports are located under Account Holder Reports)
- The Sub-Account Load Report will display a breakdown of an LSE's total NY Load:
- To view a monthly breakdown of the load reported by NYISO, LSEs can select the hyperlinked Total NY Load from the Sub-Account Load Report.
- NYISO load can also be accessed through ab LSE's NYGATS home page (via LSE Tier 1 REC Preliminary Compliance Report).
What is Load Data used for in the NYGATS?
- Load data is the basis for the LSE and Statewide EDP labels
- Load data is used to calculate the allocation of RPS Certificates to each LSE based on their Load Share
- Load data is used in CES progress reports
- Load data is also used for calculating each LSE’s Compliance Obligations
