The program initiatives – the single schedule market (SSM)day-ahead market (DAM) and enhanced real-time unit commitment (ERUC) – will make improvements to the current market design, leading to system efficiencies and support the grid of the future. This project will deliver significant value to the system and ratepayers – an expected $800 million in benefits in the first 10 years alone.
