Market-Based Regulation

Regulation service corrects for short-term changes in electricity use that might affect the stability of the power system. It helps match generation and load and adjusts generation output to maintain the desired frequency.

Load-serving entities can meet their obligation to provide regulation to the grid by using their own generation, by purchasing the required regulation under contract with another party or by buying it on the Regulation Market.
