EXAMPLE (5) Assume:


Capacity Release Request = 100,000/day for 5 years


Qualified Bids:


Maximum Bid Unit Bid Minimum

Volume Term Value Bid Volume

----------- ------- -------- ----------


Bid (a) 60,000/day 5 years $.18 60,000

Bid (b) 60,000/day 5 years $.18 50,000

Bid (c) 70,000/day 5 years $.18 65,000

Bid (d) 50,000/day 5 years $.18 15,000

Bid (e) 30,000/day 5 years $.18 10,000

Bid (f) 40,000/day 5 years $.17 0


Winning Qualified Bids: Bid (c) receives 70,000. Bid (d) receives



Explanation: Again, there are many combinations of Bids (a), (b),

(c), (d) and (e) with the same Winning Bid Value. Pro rata

allocation won't work, because each Bid would receive 100/270 of

the capacity; only Bids (d) and (e) have low enough Minimum Bid

Volumes for a pro rata allocation, and the sum of Bid (d)'s and

Bid (e)'s Maximum Bid Volumes is less than 100,000. Under Section

15.10(d)(3)(A), we then look to the combinations of Bid(s) (a),

(b), (c), (d) and (e) to identify the Bid with the highest Maximum

Bid Volume. This is Bid (c). We allocate the highest volume to

Bid (c) consistent with creating the Winning Bid Value, so 70,000

is allocated to (c). This leaves 30,000 to be allocated. Bids(a)

and (b) have the next highest Maximum Bid Volume (60,000), but the

Minimum Bid Volumes of Bids (a) and (b) are each too high to

receive the remaining capacity. The next highest available

Maximum Bid Volume is in Bid (d), which is allocated the remaining

capacity of 30,000.
