Substitute Sheets for Advice 5795-E

Dear Energy Division Tariff Unit:
An original and 1 copy of substitute sheets are attached for Advice 5795-E,
“Update to Electric Rule 1 and submission of outreach plan for customers who
may be eligible for TOU period grandfathering as required by Resolution E5053,” submitted on March 27, 2020.
PG&E is submitting revisions to Sheet 4 of Electric Rule 1. After review, it has
been requested by ED staff to remove any tariff modifications that are not directly
related to Resolutions E-5053 and to submit those modifications in a separate
submittal. The revisions to Sheet 4 of Electric Rule 1 included in the substitute
sheets removes redlines that were not directly related to Resolution E-5053.
In accordance with GO 96-B, Section 7.5.1, the substitute sheets are being
served in the same manner as the original advice letter. For administrative
convenience, a new Sheet 4 of Electric Rule 1 and redline version of Sheet 4 of
Electric Rule 1 are attached. Please discard the previously submitted pages.
Please call me at (415) 973-8794 should you have any questions regarding the
substitute sheets.

Eligible System An Eligible System is a solar (PV) generating facility: (1) That serves customer load behind-the-same meter as the generating facility. Such Generating Facilities may be taking service on Rate schedules NEM, NEM2, NEMV, NEM2V, NEMVMASH, NEM2VMSH, E-REMAT, RES-BCT, the RAM program, or interconnected under Electric Rule 21 as non-export or uncompensated export; and for which an Initial interconnection application was received by PG&E (a) No later than January 31, 2017; or (b) (for Public Agencies), no later than December 31st, 2017. (Public agency is defined here as public schools, public colleges and public universities; federal, state, county and city government agencies; municipal utilities; public water and/or sanitation agencies;and joint powers authorities). (T) (2) For which PG&E has received evidence of the customer’s final inspection clearance from the governmental authority; and (3) If the interconnection application was received by PG&E between January 23, 2017 and December 31, 2017, the generating facility must be designed to offset at least 15%1 of the customer’s current load, in a manner with consistent with the Option R requirements in Rate Schedule E19, Special Condition 19. This requirement must be met at the time the Initial Application is filed and PG&E reserves the right to verify this requirement. This requirement will not be retroactively applied to systems where an application to interconnect was received by PG&E prior to January 23, 2017.2 (L) (L) 1 For tracking systems, PG&E agrees to use a 21% capacity factor for a single tracker, or 24% for a dual tracker, instead of the 18% in the Option R calculation in E-20 Special Condition 17, Footnote 1. 2 PG&E will not apply the 15% load requirement to systems with PTO prior to January 23, 2017, the date of (D.) 17-01-006. The intent of the 15% load requirement was to eliminate the potential for applications submitted after the CPUC’s decision was issued on January 23, 2017 seeking to “lock in” a legacy TOU period by installing only a token amount of on-site solar generation.
