Violation Tracker Individual Record
On October 23, 2020, the Commission approved a Stipulation and Consent Agreement (Agreement) between FERC's Office of Enforcement, High Desert Power Project, LLC (HDPP), and Middle River Power LLC (MRP) (collectively High Desert). The Order resolved Enforcement's investigation into whether High Desert took advantage of a California Independent System Operator (CAISO) software error and submitted Residual Unit Commitment (RUC) offers into CAISO's day-ahead market in a manner that sought to maximize any Bid Cost Recovery (BCR) that might be awarded, in violation of section 222 of the Federal Power Act (FPA) and the Commission's Anti-Manipulation Rule, 18 C.F.R. ? 1c.2 (2020). High Desert admits to the facts set forth in the Agreement, but neither admits nor denies the alleged violation.
