Updated: The quantity associated with the RPS obligation includes distribution and transmission losses and is de-rated by the marginal loss factor. The EDCs apply the requisite RPS percentages to the BGS Suppliers’ energy obligations (at PJM) and hence apply the RPS percentages to energy including losses. To determine the energy obligation of an LSE, PJM uses loss-loaded schedules and de-rates these schedules by marginal losses to arrive at energy settlement values. The factors used in de-ration are determined for each hour for each EDC by PJM and are available in the BGS Data Room. When calculating the BGS Supplier’s obligations under the RPS, each EDC uses the values from the PJM settlement, which are also the values for settlement under the BGS Supplier Master Agreement - which correspond to the BGS supplier’s energy obligation (as BGS Suppliers do not serve specific retail customers).
