Texas Electricity Ratings believes that all instances of irregular behavior should be closely scrutinized

Texas Electricity Ratings, a consumer advocacy and shopping website that serves the residential and commercial customers of Texas, has observed some odd behavior in the ERCOT forecasting and report modeling which raises some questions about market viability. Texas Electricity Ratings has put together a report documenting the strange behavior and illustrating how it could possibly be evidence of market manipulation. The report also looks at the interesting timing of such behavior and the possible agendas of different groups in the Texas marketplace, as well as how possibly manipulation would effect bottom line for individual consumers.

Because of the well publicized market manipulations by Enron in the California electricity grid, as well as past instances of possible manipulation in Texas, Texas Electricity Ratings believes that all irregular behavior should be closely scrutinized, not only by the PUC and ERCOT, but also by the media and regular Texans. Particularly when any market uncertainty directly raises the prices of electricity and effects the bottom line of Texans. It is the hope of Texas Electricity Ratings that this report will shine a light on this this instance of possible manipulation and bring it under increased public scrutiny.
