JCP&L has identified the source of the discrepancy. Some JCP&L CIEP customers have on-site generation. For PJM settlement purposes, JCP&L (consistent with the other EDCs) reports the net BGS-CIEP load (i.e., net of on-site generation) to PJM. The net BGS-CIEP load (reduced by excess generation) was then assigned to suppliers based on BGS-CIEP responsibility shares. The BGS-CIEP load in the BGS Data Room was developed without netting excess generation. The result is a discrepancy between the BGS-CIEP load data in the BGS Data Room and the load that was used for settlement.
Files of excess generation are provided for:
2. CIEP Eligible
3. Total BGS
4. Total Retail
5. Certain BGS-CIEP Eligible Customers (GS/GST)
Excess generation data is provided for November 2014 forward for BGS-CIEP, Total BGS, and Total Retail. Excess generation data is provided for November 2015 forward for CIEP-Eligible and Certain BGS-CIEP Eligible Customers. Each excess generation file is posted alongside its corresponding hourly load file in the BGS Data Room.
To develop BGS-CIEP load data that is consistent with how BGS-CIEP load has been reported to PJM for settlement purposes, a bidder would sum the excess generation with the BGS-CIEP load reported in the BGS Data Room. The same calculation can also be used to develop total hourly BGS load, total hourly retail load, total hourly CIEP-Eligible load, and total hourly load for certain CIEP-Eligible customers net of excess generation.
Please note that JCP&L believes the data within these files are good estimates, the resulting calculations may not be exact and may not exactly replicate PJM settlement data.
