Supplemental to Advice 4094-E, Southern California Edison
Company’s Modified Tariffs for Green Tariff Shared Renewables

Southern California Edison Company (SCE) hereby submits to the California Public
Utilities Commission (Commission) the following changes to its tariff schedules. The
revised tariff sheets are listed on Attachment A and are attached hereto.
The purpose of this supplemental advice letter is to make additional changes to
Schedule GTSR-CR, Green Tariff Shared Renewables Community Renewables,
consistent with SCE’s comments in its Reply to the Response of ForeFront Power, LLC
on November 25, 2019.
These changes are made in accordance with General Order (GO) 96-B, General Rule
7.5.1, which authorizes utilities to make additional changes to an advice letter through
the submittal of a supplemental advice letter. This advice letter supplements in part and
will not change the integrity of the original AL 4094-E, except as noted below.
On September 26, 2019, the Commission adopted Resolution 5028-E (the Resolution),
which among other things, ordered the investor-owned utilities (IOUs) to submit a Tier 1
advice letter with prescribed modifications to the Green Tariff Shared Renewables
(GTSR) tariffs.1 On October 28, 2019, SCE submitted AL 4094-E, in compliance with
OP 4 of the Resolution, proposing revised tarrifs for the GTSR Program.

ADVICE 4094-E-A (U 338-E) -2- February 19, 2020 On November 18, 2019, ForeFront Power submitted a response to SCE’s AL 4094-E. In their Response, ForeFront Power raised concerns pertaining to the “implementation of the Resolution's requirement that the utilities' tariffs allow new customers to enroll in the GTSR Program any time during the PPA term.”2 As the Resolution finds it reasonable for developers to replace lost load, due to attrition, and requires the IOUs to make the requisite changes to their tarrifs for this change,3 SCE is proposing the following change within Schedule GTSR-CR. PROPOSED TARIFF CHANGES The following information is being included within Special Condition 7, Customer Subscription Provisions of Schedule GTSR-CR to allow developers the ability to backfill customers due to attrition. h. Developers will have the ability to replace lost load, due to attrition for a CR facility, during the term of their PPA. TIER DESIGNATION This advice letter is submitted with a Tier 1 designation, which is the same tier designation as the original advice letter, Advice 4094-E. EFFECTIVE DATE This supplemental advice letter will become effective on the same day as the original, Advice 4094-E, which is October 28, 2019. PROTESTS SCE asks that the Commission, pursuant to GO 96-B, General Rules 7.5.1, maintain the original protest and comment period designated in Advice 4094-E and not reopen the protest period. The modifications included in this supplemental advice letter do not make substantive changes that would affect the overall evaluation of the advice letter. NOTICE In accordance with General Rule 4 of GO 96-B, SCE is serving copies of this advice letter to the interested parties shown on the attached GO 96-B, A.12-01-008 et al and R.18-07-003 service lists.

Southern California Edison Rosemead, California (U 338-E) Cancelling Revised Original Cal. PUC Sheet No. Cal. PUC Sheet No. 68086-E 56747-E Schedule GTSR-CR Sheet 8 GREEN TARIFF SHARED RENEWABLES COMMUNITY RENEWABLES (Continued) SPECIAL CONDITIONS (continued) 7. Customer Subscription Provisions. The following provisions apply to Customer Subscriptions served under this Schedule: a. Customers are not permitted to subscribe to more than 100 percent (100%) of their energy demand, whereby 120% of the Customer’s reasonably anticipated annual load (in kWh), as determined by SCE, is used as a proxy to determine 100% of the Customer’s energy demand in this context. b. A Customer’s Subscription cannot be less than the equivalent of an annual average of either (i) 100 kWh per month or (ii) 25% of the Customer’s load (in kWh) per month. c. The maximum Customer Subscription served under this Schedule cannot exceed an amount equivalent to more than 2 MW of nameplate rated generating capacity from a CR Facility. This limitation does not apply to a federal, state, or local government, school or school district, county office of education, the California Community Colleges, the California State University, or the University of California. Customer Subscription will be based on a per site subscription level, not enterprise-wide subscription level. (T) (T) d. A single Customer cannot subscribe to more than 20% of any single calendar year’s total available cumulative nameplate rated generating capacity available as part of the GTSR Program. e. Prior to the execution of the PPA for a CR Facility, Customers can only subscribe to a CR Facility if they are physically located within the same municipality or county as that CR Facility or if their service address is within ten miles of that CR Facility. However, any time after a PPA is entered into between SCE and the Developer for a CR Facility , new Customers subscribing to that CR Facility may come from anywhere within SCE’s service territory and Customers with existing Subscriptions to that CR Facility who relocate elsewhere within SCE’s service territory can retain their Subscription at their new service address. Existing Customers who relocate within SCE’s service territory will be considered as having continuously received service under this Schedule for the purposes of determining the GTSR Indifference Adjustment vintage, meaning that the closed account’s GTSR Indifference Adjustment vintage will apply to the new service account, unless the Customer elects to no longer receive service under this Schedule at the time the new service account is established. f. Customers can only have a single Subscription to one CR Facility at a time. Customers cannot be subscribed to more than one CR Facility at any time. g. 45 MW of capacity is reserved for residential customer participation on the GTSR Program. SCE reserves the right to not allow additional non-residential Customer participation on this Schedule if non-residential customer participation on the GTSR Program reaches the equivalent of 224 MW. h. Developers will have the ability to replace lost load, due to attrition for a CR facility, during the term of their PPA.
