Welcome to the sandbox environment for the redesigned ERCOT Market Information System (MIS). There are no digital certificates or roles needed to access this test site.

The goal is to give ERCOT MIS users the opportunity to explore this new interface in a test environment. The feedback you provide will help us make adjustments to improve the final user experience.

Ready to get started?

Feel free to explore on your own. Attempt to perform the tasks you typically perform on MIS.

If you’re unsure where to begin, we suggest attempting one or more of these example tasks.

  • Find your most frequently used report or extract.
  • Find a report in the EMIL by narrowing down the list of products using filters.
    • Audience Filter = LSE
    • Channel = MIS: Certified
    • Posting Type = Report
    • Keyword = “Default”
  • Use the filters on the category pages to locate Outage information.
    • Sub-Category = Outages
    • Classification = Secure
  • Find Real-Time Market reports.
  • Find Settlement reports.

Note: The purpose of the MIS redesign is not to eliminate any data currently offered on MIS or to change any ERCOT applications. Although you may not be able to access the data and/or applications you typically use within this sandbox environment, rest assured that all data and applications currently offered on MIS will be available when the redesigned site goes live.
