2019 Membership Applications due Nov. 9

ERCOT has distributed its membership applications and agreements for 2019, recommending that entities interested in joining the grid operator do so well in advance of Nov. 9 to avoid potential processing delays.

Applicants may join as a corporate, associate or adjunct members. Corporate membership includes the right to vote on general membership matters, such as election of certain board members, election of TAC representatives and members of TAC subcommittees, and amendments to the Certificate of Formation and bylaws.

Market participants are not required to be members.

Membership terms are for no more than a year and do not renew automatically. Dues are required at the time of application; applicants can request waivers for good cause.

Confirmation of board members and TAC representatives for 2019 will take place at the annual membership meeting Dec. 11.

More Information and copies of ERCOT’s bylaws and Articles of Incorporation can be found on the grid operator’s website.
