Subject: Important Information About OpenSSL Heartbleed Vulnerability

PJM has verified that there are no vulnerabilities on PJM’s internet-facing systems, and PJM data is safe from the OpenSSL Heartbleed vulnerability. The Heartbleed bug is a serious vulnerability in the popular OpenSSL cryptographic software library. By obtaining the private key for an SSL/TLS certificate, an attacker could set up a fake website that passes the security verification. They could also decrypt traffic passing between a client and a server, which allows the stealing of information.

The industry recommendation is to reset passwords on all systems once the Heartbleed vulnerability has been fixed. At this time, there is no need to change your PJM passwords. As a precaution, members are encouraged to contact other websites/vendors, including personal vendors, to check if vulnerabilities have been rectified and to change passwords accordingly.

If you have any questions, please can contact the PJM Members Hotline at 1-866-400-8980.

Subject:April 1, 2014 Deadline and Eligibility Requirements for Seasonal Verification Test Transitional Mechanism

At its 02.27.2014 meeting, the Markets & Reliability Committee endorsed changes to PJM’s generating unit capability verification test procedures, as reflected in PJM Manual 21: Rules and Procedures for Determination of Generating Capability. These changes, to become effective with unit capability verification tests of summer 2014, have potential impact on the installed capacity value of steam generation units and hydro and pumped-storage hydro generation units. The committee also endorsed  a transition mechanism for Capacity Market Sellers that have existing RPM commitments that may be affected as a direct result of the revised capability test procedures. At its 03.27.2014 meeting, the Members Committee endorsed revisions to the PJM Tariff to implement the transition mechanism which is described in more detail in the posted 03.27.2014 MC meeting material (see links below). To qualify for the transitional mechanism, generation units must meet both requirements listed below and affected generation owners must provide the necessary information to PJM by the close of business on Tuesday, April 1, 2014.

Any generating unit that meets both of the following requirements is considered to be an affected resource impacted by the Manual 21 revisions and would be eligible for the proposed transition mechanism: 

  • The generating unit must be either a hydro generating unit or pumped storage generating unit which will now be required to conduct its capacity testing in the summer; or steam generating unit that had not previously provided ambient-corrected summer capacity test results taking into account ambient conditions as clarified under the Manual 21 revisions. 
  • The generating unit must provide PJM with summer capability verification test data meeting the revised Manual 21 requirements for the 2011, 2012 and 2013 summer periods by April 1, 2014; and this data must show that the highest revised test value from the 2011, 2012 and 2013 summer periods is less than the generating unit’s current Capacity Interconnection Rights (CIR) MW value and the generating unit’s current RPM ICAP MW value.

To qualify for the transitional mechanism, affected generation owners must provide the data described above to PJM by the close of business on Tuesday, April 1, 2014. This data should be sent to PJM via email to RPM Hotline. Affected generation owners that meet the requirements above and that wish to elect the transition mechanism for the 2014/15 Delivery Year must also notify PJM of this election in the same communication by the close of business on Tuesday, April 1, 2014.  

Please contact PJM with any questions.

Subject: DA Re-Post

PJM has identified an error in the input data utilized to clear the Day Ahead market for March 27, 2014.  The error occurred when a value of 350 MW was used for the WEST Interface instead of 3500 MW for hours 8-23 and resulted in incorrect prices and quantities in the Day Ahead market solution. Pursuant to section 1.10.8 (e) of Attachment K-Appendix of the PJM Tariff and Schedule 1 of the Operating Agreement, PJM is providing notice of this issue and its intent to repost Day Ahead case results for March 27, 2014.  PJM will make every effort to have the revised results posted by close of business, March 28, 2014

We apologize for any inconvenience.

Subject: PJM Manual 11 Revisions

Proposed Manual 11 revisions were developed by the Demand Response Subcommittee. The proposed revisions were developed to ensure that the manual conforms to the Tariff regarding demand response during normal operations, so that stakeholders have a consistent understanding of appropriate Economic DR energy settlements. The proposed Manual 11 revisions were endorsed by the Market Implementation Committee; however they were not endorsed by the Markets and Reliability Committee at its meeting on February 27, 2014.

PJM has incorporated the proposed revisions into revision 66 of Manual 11, which has been posted on PJM.com today. The specific revisions are in Section 10.1: included conforming language to tariff provisions approved under order 745 that customer baseline should represent what the load would have otherwise been and therefore settlements are not permitted for load reductions that would have otherwise occurred as part of normal operations.

Please note that Operating Agreement section 10.4.iii and Manual 34 section 11.14 recognize the right and responsibility of PJM to make changes to the Manuals as necessary, should stakeholder endorsement not be attainable. While PJM rarely exercises this right and responsibility, PJM has determined that this is the proper course of action in this case.

Subject: Notice of issue with Regulation prices

Pursuant to section 1.10.8 (e) of Attachment K of the PJM Tariff and Operating Agreement, PJM is providing notice that there was a minor issue that affected a small amount of the 5-minute Regulation clearing prices from October 1, 2012 through February 4, 2014.  Specifically, PJM identified a small number of instances where a demand resource providing Regulation failed the Three-Pivotal Supplier Test, was marginal, but set the clearing price using the wrong submitted offer price.  Over the affected time period from October 1, 2012 through February 4, 2014, this scenario only affected 1.6% of the 5-minute pricing intervals.  As a result of the provisions regarding price reposting in section 1.10.8 (e) of Attachment K of the PJM Tariff and Operating Agreement, PJM will not be reposting market clearing prices.

Subject:  Details Concerning the Offer Cap Waiver Filing in Docket No. ER14-1145-000.

Dear Members,

On January 23, 2014, PJM submitted in Docket No. ER14-1145-000 a request for waiver of certain Operating Agreement and Tariff provisions as necessary to permit Market Sellers to include in their cost-based offers for Generation Capacity Resources the marginal costs of generation of their resource notwithstanding that those costs exceed the Operating Agreement’s $1,000/MWh offer-price cap. PJM asked the Commission to set a shortened, 7-day, comment period for the filing, to act on it by February 10, 2014, and to make the waiver effective prospectively from the date of FERC’s order on the waiver request.

Until PJM receives FERC approval for this request to permit Market Sellers to include in their cost-based offers for Generation Capacity Resources the marginal costs exceeding the Operating Agreement’s $1,000/MWh offer-price cap, Market Sellers must continue to submit their cost based offers at a cap of $1,000/MWh and follow the process to receive a “make-whole” payment for the difference between their submitted cost based offer of $1,000/MWh and their costs which includes all of their marginal generation costs in excess of their submitted cost based offer of $1,000/MWh. Specific details concerning the process for requesting “make-whole” payments on a different cost basis than what is submitted to PJM is described in Attachment C of PJM Manual 11.

For additional questions or concerns, please contact Adrien Ford.
