Market Reports ERCOT Visibility Market Metrics / Visibility Scorecard / Dashboard 23 RMS Update on Move-In / Move-Out Task Force November 14, 2002 24 MIMO Workshop Progress 32 Concepts have been discussed 7 Concepts were dismissed for various reasons

1 Concept was determined as solved in Version 1.5 3 Concepts were combined into other concepts 21 Concepts in Task Force 6 Concepts approved by RMS on 10/16 6 Concepts will be taken to RMS for vote on 11/14 9 Concepts are currently tabled until additional information can be obtained 25 Concepts for RMS vote Mid-Term Pending 814_06s Retired ESI Ids Invalid ESI ID Retry Short-Term Processing Efficiency Canceling Move-Ins with Move-Outs. Handling Switch after 650 Disconnect 26 RMS Approved Recommendations

Pending 814_06s - Mid-Term This concept involves ERCOT holding 814_06s until the morning of 2 days prior to the effective date (5 days on 814_06s from switches). This concept also involves ERCOT rejecting any Cancels, Date Changes, or new transactions that are dated prior to the effective date for the transaction that is scheduled. Retired ESI Ids - Mid-Term This recommendation is intended to develop a process to retire ESI Ids when there is an active REP of Record. The volumes of these are temp meters. When a TDSP needs to retire an ESI ID that has a REP of Record, they will send a 650_04 with a new code to the CR. The CR must use this new code to create a Move-Out on the ESI ID. After the Move-Out is complete, the TDSP will send the 814_20 retire to ERCOT. Invalid ESI ID Retry - Mid-Term If a Move-In rejects for Invalid ESI ID, ERCOT will hold and retry the Move-In at a regular interval of time for 48 hours (only counting hours on business days, but not only business hours.) After the retry period has expired, if the Move-In is still in a reject status for Invalid ESI ID, ERCOT will send an 814_17 to the submitting CR. 27 Unapproved Recommendations The following recommendations were remanded back to the MIMO Task Force for further discussion: Processing Efficiency - Short-Term This recommendation involves processing efficiency goals for ERCOT and the TDSPs

as well as suggestions for CRs. Handling Switch after 650 Disconnect - Short-Term Off-Cycle Switches: TDSP will use the off-cycle switch to re-energize an ESI ID if the ESI ID was de-energized with a 650 disconnect and no Move-Out has been received. For on-cycle Switches TDSPs will effectuate the switch, but will not energize the ESI ID. The CR must follow up with a Service Order re-connect. This would require a change to Tx SET 650 for option 1 CRs. Customer Canceling Move-Ins with Move-Outs - Short-Term If a TDSP receives a backdated Move-Out with the same effective date as an already completed Move-In, and the Move-Out CR is the same as the Move-in CR, the TDSP will de-energize the premise and send a final and initial with the same read and read dates and the final would have zero consumption. (Except for IDR meters) If the Move-Out is not the same CR as the Move-In, the TDSP will reject the Move-Out for not REP of Record. 28 Next Steps MIMO Taskforce meetings as needed Discussions on concepts for resolving existing issues Discussions around concepts for handling stacking Recommendations to RMS at future RMS meetings Additional Concepts

Follow-through on execution of approved concepts Release of implementation timelines Coordinating test flights with TTPT as appropriate Development of Texas Set Change Controls, Protocol Revision Requests, and RFP (If necessary) Deployment of Solutions Re-Evaluation of Move-In/Move-Out processes 29 Quick Recovery Team Update 30 Quick Recovery Effort Pursuing responses from CRs and TDSPs ~3,657 ESI Ids are awaiting more information or acknowledgment of receipt from CR ~29,084 have been sent to TDSPs for investigation and are waiting for a transaction All New issues have been addressed 2,697In Analysis issues are being worked QRE project will be transitioned back to ERCOT Registration by 12/20/02. Transition activities are currently under way.

31 Quick Recovery Effort QRE is transitioning processes and procedures to ERCOT Data Management and Registration teams. QRE is providing documentation for all QRE business processes to ERCOT QRE has hosted brown bag and individual training sessions with Data Management and Registration teams QRE has provided CBT training modules to ERCOT for new hires. Modules have been reviewed and modified per ERCOT comments. QRE will provide two week of shadowing ERCOT employees taking over responsibilities 32 QRE Transition Transition tasks have been identified and checklist created. Market notification of transition and survey was sent to Market on 11/12/02 and feedback was returned Survey feedback will be used to assist ERCOT in identifying the proper owner Survey comments will be used to determine what processes worked and what needs to be improved

QRE will provide two documents to ERCOT by 12/20 Lessons Learned Recommendations 33 ESI Ids Reported to QRE (as of December 2, 2002) Current Status Quantity New 0 Point of Failure Quantity Cause Not Reported 21887 Unexecutable 81

35 Market Synchronization Retailer Synchronization Project Objective Address market issues resulting in an out of sync Rep of Record between ERCOT, TDSP, and CR systems for all ESI IDs resulting from market startup/processing issues as well as subsequent workarounds Completed ERCOT identified Perfect Sync and 1 Day Perfect sent lists to MPs ERCOT identified out-of-synch categories at Sept 10th design meeting Task Force identified additional ESI IDs considered In Sync sent lists to MPs Task Force prioritized 8 categories based upon potential customer impact ERCOT has sent priority 1 through 6 out-of-sync files to TDSPs and CRs

November 11th face-to-face meeting to resolve how to fix set principles to correct out-of-sync conditions ERCOT has made corrections to ~55K ESI IDs In Progress ERCOT compiling and analyzing MP responses to out-of-sync files . TDSPs and CRs completing analysis and response to priority 2-6 files. Initial responses are due to ERCOT by 12-06-02 ERCOT, TDSPs and CRs making corrections per 11-11-02 decisions 36 Market Synchronization Retailer Synchronization (cont.) Next Steps December 10th, 17th Follow-up conference calls Propose process to complete and close out this project Establish timeline Establish reporting mechanism 37

Market Synchronization TDSP as LSE Clean-up Objective Completed Ensure that all ESI ID are converted from the TDSP as LSE by the time True-Up Settlement of February 2002 begins; which is currently scheduled for 12-07-02 ERCOT sent TDSPs list of ESI ID affiliated with TDSP as LSE any time after Feb 01, 2002 All TDSPs have responded to ERCOT original list with suggested corrective action Approximately 34K ESI IDs had been corrected as of 12-02-02 In Progress ERCOT is reconciling remaining 6K ESI IDs with TDSPs and confirming suggested corrective action can be taken All corrections to be completed by Friday, 12-06-2002 One TDSP to confirm that it is valid to have ESI IDs with TDSP as LSE after 0131-2001. 38 Market Synchronization Non Price to Beat

Objective Make necessary corrections to ensure that >1MW Customers were switched on the correct date in January 2002 Completed Items Per RMS direction, ERCOT sent lists to each MP for reconciliation: 1,134 ESI Ids (>1 MW) identified by CRs (meeting the April 30 deadline) CR and TDSP have reached agreement of Service Instance Date for all ESI IDs 1,035 (91%) ESI IDs are corrected 82 (7%) ESI IDs were agreed not to fix by TDSP and CR ERCOT provided full list to TDSPs and CRs with agreement dates on 11/13/02 In Progress 17 (2%) ESI IDs with action required to complete agreement 13 CR agreed to TDSP date (after TDSP submit usage, ERCOT will correct) 4 ESI ID retired (TDSP needs to submit 814_20 retire transaction) Next Steps

ERCOT to reconcile and clean-up any outstanding issues 39 Resettlement of True-up Status Update November 1, 2002 True-Up Settlement of November 20, 2001 The date we move from the ERCOT Board resolution to the Protocols IDR Data Threshold Sept Oct Nov Dec December 5, 2002 180 re-settlements performed to date (Operating Day 01/26/02) Jan 2003
