Auction Revenue Right

What is an Auction Revenue Right?

An Auction Revenue Right (ARR) is a right to receive revenues from the Financial Transmission Rights (FTR) Auctions administered by the ISO. ARRs are categorized in the ISO settlement billing by the FTR Auction type (Long-Term or Monthly) and FTR class type (On-Peak or Off-Peak) for which the FTR revenues were collected.

In what document(s) do I find details about Auction Revenue Rights?

Primary provisions for the settlement of Auction Revenue Rights are included in, but not limited to ISO-New England Market Rule 1, Appendix C and ISO New England Manual for Financial Transmission Rights Manual M-06.

Who can expect to incur an Auction Revenue Right Credit or Charge?


Auction Revenue Rights are allocated to Congestion Paying Load Serving Entities through a four-stage allocation process, and to Market Participants with Incremental Auction Revenue Rights for transmission upgrades.


Market Participants with cleared bids in the FTR Auction will be charged based on their cleared MW and the FTR clearing prices. The revenues from the auction are distributed through the ARRs. See Financial Transmission Right for additional information.
