The actual or expected costs underlying a resource’s cost-based incremental energy offer above $1,000/ MWh must be verified before that offer can be used for purposes of calculating Locational Marginal Prices. If a resource submits an incremental energy offer above $1,000/MWh and the actual or expected costs underlying that offer cannot be verified before the market clearing process begins, that offer may not be used to calculate Locational Marginal Prices and the resource would be eligible for a make-whole payment if that resource is dispatched and the resource’s actual costs are verified afterthe-fact. A resource would also be eligible for a make-whole payment if it is dispatched and its verified cost-based incremental energy offer exceeds $2,000/MWh. All resources, regardless of type, are eligible to submit cost-based incremental energy offers in excess of $1,000/MWh.

2. Amend Sec.  35.28 by adding a new paragraph (g)(11) to read as 
follows:


Sec.  35.28  Non-discriminatory open access transmission tariff.

* * * * *
    (g) * * *
    (11) A resource's incremental energy offer must be capped at the 
higher of $1,000/MWh or that resource's cost-based incremental energy 
offer. For the purpose of calculating Locational Marginal Prices, 
Regional Transmission Organizations and Independent System Operators 
must cap cost-based incremental energy offers at $2,000/MWh. The actual 
or expected costs underlying a resource's cost-based incremental energy 
offer above $1,000/MWh must be verified before that offer can be used 
for purposes of calculating Locational Marginal Prices. If a resource 
submits an incremental energy offer above $1,000/MWh and the actual or 
expected costs underlying that offer cannot be verified before the 
market clearing process begins, that offer may not be used to calculate 
Locational Marginal Prices and the resource would be eligible for a 
make-whole payment if that resource is dispatched and the resource's 
actual costs are verified after-the-fact. A resource would also be 
eligible for a make-whole payment if it is dispatched and its verified 
cost-based incremental energy offer exceeds $2,000/MWh. All resources, 
regardless of type, are eligible to submit cost-based incremental 
energy offers in excess of $1,000/MWh.
