This unit is dispatched as scheduled generating unit with respect to its dispatch offers, targets and generation outputs. Accordingly, information about YARWUN_1 is reported as scheduled generating unit information.

However, they are required to comply with some of the obligations of a Market Customer in respect of a scheduled load.
