Starting June 1, 2016, monthly audits for compliance with PJM Manual 10 will be performed on all PJM eGADS planned and maintenance outages and deratings. 

Manual 10 “Pre-Scheduling Operations” states:

  1. All planned outages and deratings must be scheduled no less than 30 days prior to the operating day in which the planned outage or derating is to commence. (Section 2.2.1)
  2. All maintenance outages and deratings must be scheduled no less than 3 days prior to the operating day in which the maintenance outage or derating is to commence. (Section2.3.2) 

Please read the document on the PJM eGADS webpage entitled “Scheduled Events (Planned & Maintenance)” at this link for more detailed information: http://www.pjm.com/markets-and-operations/etools/egads.aspx 

Keep in mind that compliance is not limited to the most recent eGADS reporting month, but will typically be performed on the existing and most recent Delivery Years.
