ADVICE LETTER 3701-E
(U 902-E)
PUBLIC UTILITIES COMMISSION OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA
SUBJECT:

SAN DIEGO GAS & ELECTRIC MODIFICATIONS TO RULE 19 PURSUANT TO
DECISION 21-01-018

PURPOSE
San Diego Gas & Electric Company (SDG&E) hereby submits this advice letter for approval to the
California Public Utilities Commission (Commission) for modifications to its electric Rule 19 as shown
in Attachment A.
BACKGROUND
On September 12, 2019, the Commission initiated Rulemaking (R.) 19-09-009 to design a framework
surrounding the commercialization of microgrids associated with Senate Bill (SB) 1339, as well as to
account for the Commission’s commitment toward utilizing additional technologies and activities that
may be useful for achieving overall resiliency goals.
On December 20, 2019, the assigned Commissioner issued a scoping memo and ruling that adopted
a schedule for this proceeding, divided into three tracks.1 Track 1 was to focus on deploying resiliency
planning in areas that are prone to outage events and wildfires, with the goal of putting some
microgrid and other resiliency strategies in place by spring or summer 2020, if not sooner. The Track 1
Decision (D.) 20-06-017 was issued in June 2020.
Track 2 of this proceeding encompasses the more complex issues and contours of SB 1339
implementation to develop standards, protocols, guidelines, methods, rates, and tariffs to support and
reduce barriers to microgrid deployment statewide, while prioritizing system, public, and worker safety,
and avoiding cost shifts between ratepayers. The Commission issued D.21-01-018 in January 2021
to fulfill its Track 2 goals. Track 3 will consider the ongoing implementation requirements for SB 1339
and any future resiliency planning through the formation of the Resiliency & Microgrids Working
Group.

Public Utilities Commission 2 February 22, 2021 Among the requirements in D.21-01-018, made effective January 14, 2021, Ordering Paragraph (OP) 2 requires SDG&E, Southern California Edison Company (SCE), and Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) – collectively, the utilities – to modify their respective tariffs to allow limited energy supply to separate premises during a grid outage and subject to the limitation of Public Utilities Code Section 218. Specifically, SDG&E must modify its SDG&E Rule 19, and SCE and PG&E must modify their respective Rule 18 tariffs, to explicitly state that microgrids owned by public agencies or by a third party that primarily serves facilities owned or operated by, or on behalf of, public agencies are permitted to supply electricity to critical facilities owned or operated by or on behalf of a public agency on an adjacent premises. Furthermore, the Commission established a subscription limit of 10 microgrid projects for each utility’s service territory and relied on the existing critical facilities list and processes adopted in D.19-05-042 or in subsequent decisions.2 OP 2 also requires the utilities to form a pathway for these microgrid projects to become live, with a. To prohibit parallel operation of the service line between the premises during normal operations, (i.e., no grid outage), the public agency is required to install a device to prevent such parallel operation. The utilities are required to review and approve the facilities connected to each microgrid to ensure that the microgrid system performs as required under normal and abnormal grid conditions. SDG&E submits this Tier 2 advice letter in compliance with D.21-01-018 OP 2. PROPOSED TARIFF CHANGES SDG&E proposes the following modifications to Section D of Rule 19:3 Other Uses and Premises 1. A customer shall not furnish or use electricity received from the Utility upon other pPremises, except for the Utility’s operating convenience, or for other purposes than those specified in the customer's application for service or in the applicable rate schedule. except: a. for Utility’s Operating Convenience, as defined under Rule 1, or b. when electricity supplied by Utility to a microgrid owned by a Public Agency1 or thirdparty that primarily serves a facility operated by, or on behalf of, a Public Agency (Host) is permitted to supply electricity to a critical facility2 owned or operated by, or on behalf of, a Public Agency on an adjacent Premises (Recipient) to conduct emergency and/or critical operations during times when electricity supplied by Utility through the electrical grid is not available. The Public Agency, third-party owner of the microgrid, or the customer at the adjoining Premises is required to install a device, subject to Utility’s review and approval, that prohibits parallel operations of the service line between the Premises during normal operation. Additionally, the Host and the Recipient are required to install a Utility-approved automatic transfer switch that will isolate its respective Premises from the Utility’s electrical grid when the microgrid is operating. This exception is subject to the limitation of Public Utilities 2 3 D.19-05-042 adopts de-energization (Public Safety Power Shut-off) communication and notification guidelines for the electric investor-owned utilities along with updates to the requirements established in Resolution ESRB-8. Definitions and interim list of “Critical Facilities” and “Critical Infrastructure” are found in Appendix A of D.19-05-042. Underlined text denotes new language. Strikethrough text denotes deleted or relocated language.

Public Utilities Commission 3 February 22, 2021 Code Section 218 and shall be available only for the first ten eligible customers that have received Utility’s authorization to operate under this provision. In addition to the requirements set forth above, Recipients are required to submit a complete and valid Emergency/Standby Generator Installation Request (Form 14202776), including evidence of a final electric inspection clearance from the Governmental Authority3 having jurisdiction. 1 2 3 As used in this Section D.1.b., A Public Agency is a state, county, local, or tribal agency. For purposes of this exception, a facility is considered a critical facility if it is included in SDG&E’s existing critical facilities list. The critical facilities list is developed and managed by SDG&E in partnership with local government, and subject to the process adopted by the CPUC in D.19-05-042 and subsequent decisions. As defined under the Definitions section contained in Electric Rule 21. PROPOSED IMPLEMENTATION PLAN SDG&E intends to leverage the process it has developed and utilized for years with customers seeking emergency/standby generator installation,4 since the purpose and elements of review are identical. The information required serves two important functions: 1) To provide SDG&E with the generator installation notification required by the California State Health & Safety Code, and 2) To allow SDG&E’s Electric Distribution Engineering personnel to check for apparent design attributes that could allow the generator to inadvertently connect with and back-feed the SDG&E electrical grid. Such an occurrence, if not properly designed for, could create a serious safety hazard for utility and customer personnel, and may result in substantial damage to utility and customer equipment and facilities. This review is performed at no cost to the customer. The following documents must be provided to SDG&E for review and approval: • • • • 4 Emergency/Standby Generator Installation Request Form. This form is provided in Attachment A and provides the basic project Electrical Single-Line Diagram. This diagram must show, at a minimum, the electrical path from the generator and transfer switch back to the SDG&E meter that normally supplies power to the loads supported. The diagram should include all significant electrical components in the path, such as panel boards, transformers, and switchgear. A Sequence of Operation description for the transfer switch or equipment. A description can be found in the operating manual provided by the switch’s manufacturer. For non-standard or custom-built transfer systems or for systems utilizing controls to alter or otherwise influence the normal operation of off-the-shelf load transfer equipment, additional descriptive information specific to those systems will be needed. Authorization to: Receive Customer Information or Act on Customer’s Behalf. This form must be completed and returned only if a third-party (someone other than the utility customer) will need to receive the customer’s utility account information from SDG&E for use in connection with this generator installation. See “Emergency/Standby Generator (w/transfer switch only),” available at: https://www.sdge.com/moreinformation/customer-generation/electric-rule-21. SDG&E has updated the form in Attachment A of this advice letter for filing as Form 142-02776.

Public Utilities Commission • 4 February 22, 2021 Emergency/Standby Generator Natural Gas Service Datasheet. This form is only required if the generator will be fueled with natural gas. This information helps SDG&E to determine if the existing gas service is adequate to support generator operation. If the project includes new or added generation at the premise(s), a separate interconnection request is required for each premise where generation is proposed to be located.5 SUBSCRIPTION LIMIT As stated in the proposed tariff revisions, this exception to Rule 19 will be available only for the first ten eligible customers that have received SDG&E’s authorization to operate under this provision. SDG&E will track the number of customers who qualified under the Rule 19, Section D, exception and received permission to operate. SDG&E will submit an advice letter with a recommendation (1) whether to continue the Rule 19 amendment for future projects, or (2) whether to make any modifications to the existing amendment.6 EFFECTIVE DATE SDG&E believes that this filing is subject to Energy Division disposition and should be classified as Tier 2 (effective after staff approval), pursuant to GO 96-B and the D.21-01-018.
