Load Profiles

Load Profiling, within the ERCOT market, is the practice of estimating 15-minute interval Load for Customers where interval consumption is not available. The purpose of the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) Load Profiling Guide (LPG) is to explicate the language and intent in the Protocols that affect Load Profiling. It is not a substitute for the ERCOT Protocols or the Public Utility Commission of Texas (PUCT) Substantive Rules. In the event of a conflict of Protocols or PUCT Substantive Rules, the Protocols and PUCT Substantive Rules take precedence over the LPG.
