At its December 9, 2022 meeting, the Executive Committee of the New York State Reliability Council set the New York Control Area (NYCA) Installed Reserve Margin (IRM) requirement for the May 1, 2023 to April 30, 2024 Capability Year at 20.0%. This decision was based on the NYSRC study, “New York Control Area Installed Capacity Requirement for the Period May 2023 to April 2024.”

The study report can be found at NYSRC NYCA ICR Reports.
