167. API, Calpine and LS Power, CEE, Direct Energy, Dominion, Duke, EPSA, ETI, Exelon, FirstEnergy, IPI, NEI, P3, PSEG, R Street, and Vistra generally support PJM’s proposal to implement downward-sloping ORDCs to procure reserves beyond the MRR.335

173. R Street warns that there is a risk that PJM’s ORDCs will not actually reflect operational reality, and therefore requests that the Commission require PJM and the IMM to report on whether out-of-market actions by operators diminish as a result of the market-based procurement of operating reserves.357 R Street further suggests that the Commission require periodic re-evaluation of the appropriateness of the slopes of the ORDCs. 358

240. Direct Energy, IPI, PSEG, and R Street argue that PJM should periodically review its ORDCs to ensure the ORDCs are meeting PJM’s stated goals of achieving improved price formation, increasing transparency, and improving system reliability.
