What is Peak Energy Rent?
Peak Eneargy Rent (PER) is a value used to calculate the PER Adjustment which reflects revenues during high priced hours in the Energy markets.
PER is calculated at an hourly and monthly level for each Capacity Zone as determined by the Forward Capacity Auction (FCA). The Locational Marginal Price (LMP) is the Hub price for the Rest-of-Pool Capacity Zone and for all other Capacity Zones the LMP is the LMP of the Load Zone associated with the Capacity Zone(s).
Hourly PER is calculated as the maximum of the difference between the LMP and a strike price or zero.
The strike price is based on fuel cost (ultra low-sulfur No. 2 oil measured at New York Harbor or day-ahead gas measured at the Algonquin City Gate) and the heat rate of a proxy unit.
Monthly PER is the sum of all Hourly PER values in the month.
