Planning Resource Auction 

This voluntary annual capacity auction allows Market Participants to achieve resource adequacy more economically and its enhanced market-based design allows for greater transparency. The location-specific approach used in the PRA provides efficient price signals to encourage the appropriate resources to participate in the locations where they provide the most benefit.  This methodology creates a variety of options for Load Serving Entities (“LSEs”) to obtain the resources required to meet their Planning Reserve Margin Requirement, including Fixed Resource Adequacy Plans, bilateral transactions, self-scheduling, capacity deficiency payments, and auction purchases.
