Scheduling Coordinator Metered Entity
CAISO requires that resource owners select a Meter Data Management Agency (MDMA) to submit Settlement Quality Meter Data (SQMD) on behalf of the Scheduling Coordinator (SC). This is in lieu of the former requirement to provide a certified and inspected revenue meter from which CAISO would process settlement quality revenue data directly.
