Invoice Payments (Nodal DAM)

Nodal DAM Invoice Payments:

  • Nodal Protocol 9.4.1 (2) states:

All DAM Invoices due, with funds owed by an Invoice Recipient, must be paid to ERCOT in U.S. Dollars by either of the following:

(a) On or before the payment due date if the payment is made by Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) in immediately available or good funds (i.e., not subject to reversal); or

(b) On or before two Bank Business Days before the payment due date if the payment is made by Automated Clearing House (ACH) funds.

Invoice Payment Timing & Activities

Nodal DAM Invoice Payments:

  • Observations:
    • ERCOT does need some RTM data to settle the DAM (CRRs)
    • ERCOT has until 23:59 on the second Business Day after OD to post DAM Statements, Invoices and Extracts
    • MPs most likely would not begin validation / approval / shadowing processes until the morning of the third Business Day after the OD
    • ACH payments would have to be initiated that morning of the third Business Day after the OD in order to abide by the current (4 day) Protocol deadline “on or before two Bank Business Days before the payment due date”
    • Wires must be initiated by 1500 to arrive by 1700 on the payment due date
payment breach and late payments
Payment Breach and Late Payments

Payment Breach and Late Payments by MPs:

  • Nodal Protocol 16.11.6 can be summarized:

(1) MP responsible to pay full amount when due

(2) MP cannot net separate invoice payments together

(3) MP failure to pay is “Payment Breach” and ERCOT will attempt to contact AR and Credit Contact by phone and written notices demanding payment

(4) ERCOT may waive the Payment Breach if ERCOT receives full payment within two Bank Business Days after the due date. ERCOT will track number of Late Payments. Upon a Payment Breach, ERCOT may impose the following remedies:

.4 ERCOT May Repossess CRRs

.2 Second Late Payment in rolling 12-month period: written notice (Level I action taken or Level II Enforcement action taken if Level I taken on first)
