From RTO Insider:

Bivens told the PUC she wouldn’t have “strong concerns with one-off exposures” but indicated a need for some period of confidentiality. Beth Garza, Bivens’ predecessor at the IMM and now a senior fellow at R Street Institute, agreed.

“Competitive markets are most effective when market participants are focused on the costs and capabilities of their own resources,” she told RTO Insider, noting the delay of unit-specific availability information was a “regulatory compromise.”

“I support it as an effective general practice,” she said. “However, I would also support the ability for ERCOT to make generator availability data public immediately in the aftermath of predefined events.”
