Advice 6097-E
(Pacific Gas and Electric Company ID U 39 E)

Public Utilities Commission of the State of California
Subject:

Modifications to Electric Rule 18 Pursuant to Decision 21-01-018

Purpose
Pacific Gas and Electric Company (“PG&E”) hereby submits this Tier 2 Advice Letter
(“AL”) proposing modifications to its Electric Rule 18 - Supply to Separate Premises and
Submetering of Electric Energy – to support qualifying microgrid projects, in compliance
with the California Public Utilities Commission (“CPUC” or “Commission”) Decision (“D.”)
21-01-018 (“Decision”) Ordering Paragraph (“OP”) 2.
Background
The Commission initiated Rulemaking (“R.”) 19-09-009 to develop a policy framework
surrounding the commercialization of microgrids and related resiliency strategies, and to
implement Senate Bill (SB) 1339 (Stern, 2018).
On July 3, 2020, the assigned Commissioner issued an amended Scoping Memo and
Ruling for Track 2. This amended Scoping Memo and Ruling focused on the continued
implementation of SB 1339. SB 1339 requires the Commission to implement microgrid
standards, protocols, guidelines, methods, rates, and tariffs as well as reduce barriers to
microgrid deployment statewide.
On January 21, 2021, the Commission adopted D.21-01-018, which approves a Staff
proposal to allow public agency microgrids to use energy received from the grid to serve
critical customers on adjacent parcels in the event of a grid outage.
This AL demonstrates PG&E’s compliance with OP 2 of D. 21-01-018, which requires:
•

Pacific Gas and Electric Company, Southern California Edison Company,
and San Diego Gas & Electric Company shall each file a Tier 2 advice letter,
within 30 days upon the issuance of this decision, implementing Rule 18
and Rule 19 revisions pursuant to Section 3.2.3 of this decision.

Advice 6097-E -2- February 22, 2021 • In this Tier 2 advice letter, Pacific Gas and Electric Company, Southern California Edison Company, and San Diego Gas & Electric Company shall each 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. • In this Tier 2 advice letter, Pacific Gas and Electric Company, Southern California Edison Company, and San Diego Gas & Electric Company shall each also form a pathway for the Rule 18 or Rule 19 microgrid projects to become live, and shall adhere to the subscription limit of 10 microgrid projects for each service territory pursuant to Section 3.2.3 of this decision, including review and approval by Pacific Gas and Electric Company, Southern California Edison Company, and San Diego Gas & Electric Company of the facilities connected to the microgrid to ensure the microgrid system performs as required under normal and abnormal grid conditions. Discussion In the advice letter, PG&E only proposes modifications to its Electric Rule 18 as described below. PG&E does not seek to modify Rule 21 - Generating Facility Interconnections but will make minor application processing modifications to accommodate the interconnection of qualifying microgrid projects, as outlined in Section IV below. Tariff Revisions In compliance with OP2 of D.21-01-018, PG&E submits the following modifications to its Electric Rule 18 Section B.1 B. OTHER USES OR PREMISES A customer shall not furnish or use electricity received from PG&E upon premises, or for purposes, other than those specified in the customer’s application for service except: Where, pursuant to D.21-01-018, microgrids owned by public agencies1 or third-party that primarily serves a facility operated by, or on behalf of, a public agency are permitted to supply electricity to a critical facility2 owned or operated by, or on behalf of, a public agency on an adjacent Premises to conduct emergency and/or critical operations during a grid outage. The public agency, third-party owner of the microgrid, or the customer at the adjoining Premises is required to install a device, subject to 1 Underlined text denotes new language. Strikethrough text denotes deleted or relocated language.

Advice 6097-E -3- February 22, 2021 PG&E’s review and approval, that prohibits parallel operations of the service line between the Premises during normal operation. This exception is subject to the limitation of Public Utilities Code Section 218. Additionally, this exception is available until PG&E has reached the cap adopted in D.21-01-018 of ten projects that have completed the interconnection process and received permission to operate in PG&E’s service territory. ---------------1 Public agencies are state, county, local, and tribal agencies. 2 For purposes of this exception, a facility is considered a critical facility if it is included in PG&E’s existing critical facilities list. The critical facilities list is developed and managed by PG&E in partnership with local governments, and subject to the process adopted by the CPUC in D.19-05-042 and subsequent decisions. IMPLEMENTATION PLAN Below is an overview of PG&E’s plan for qualifying microgrid projects to implement the modifications to Rule 18, Section B: 1. Qualified customers will apply through PG&E’s existing interconnection process under Rule 21 or net energy metering (“NEM”). 2. Customer generation and microgrid operation will be studied and tested based on existing Rule 21 or NEM requirements. 3. PG&E will track the number of customers who qualified under the Rule 18, Section B, exception and received permission to operate. 4. PG&E will submit an advice letter with a recommendation to continue or discontinue the Rule 18 exception once the fifth microgrid project in PG&E’s service territory has received permission to operate.2 No cost information is required for this advice letter. This advice letter will not increase any rate or charge, cause the withdrawal of service, or conflict with any other schedule or rule. Safety Considerations PG&E anticipates that qualifying microgrid applications for this Rule 18 exception will involve use of existing systems to complete “over-the-fence”3 connections (to qualified critical loads), or installation of new microgrid systems for this arrangement. In either event, PG&E will process applications per its existing Rule 21 requirements. PG&E will 2 3 See D.21-01-018, OP 3. The “over-the-fence” rule is codified in Sections 218 and 2868 of the California Public Utilities Code and allows generators meeting certain requirements to serve load on adjacent parcels without becoming subject to regulation as a public utility.
- Page 3 -

Advice 6097-E -4- February 22, 2021 modify its Rule 21 technical review process to include review, and field test, of the applicant’s method of isolating the generating system and critical load from the grid to ensure there is no backfeed onto the grid. The applicant will need to include in the application sufficient documentation to show that there is relaying installed to isolate the system and critical load from their respective connections to the grid thereby assuring that the system will not impose safety issues while the grid is down. Note that this Rule 21 review will not assure the safe and reliable operation of the customer’s microgrid when it is disconnected from PG&E’s grid during outages. PG&E also has information previously supplied regarding the safe and reliable operation of back-up generators applicable to the critical load service account. PG&E expects that further requirements and communications with the critical load service account might be necessary.

RECREATIONAL VEHICLE (RV) PARKS (Cont'd.) Under no circumstances shall an RV park owner/operator install submeters and bill the tenants for submetered energy use unless condition a., b., or c. below applies and the provisions of Section D. below are met: a. Where the RV park owner/operator installed a submetering system prior to May 15, 1962. b. Where the RV park owner/operator rents all of the RV spaces on a prepaid monthly basis to RV units used as permanent residences and qualifies for service under Schedule ESR. c. Where a master-metered RV park owner/operator rents RV spaces on a prepaid monthly basis to permanent-residence RV units and on a daily/weekly basis to transient RV units and arranges the electric distribution system in accordance with PG&E's applicable tariffs so that all electricity to the permanent-residence RV spaces is supplied through a separate PG&E meter. In this situation, only the separately metered portion of the RV park where all of the spaces are rented on a prepaid monthly basis to permanentresidence RV units can be submetered and would qualify for service under Schedule ESR. Where the master-metered RV park owner/operator does not submeter the electric service to the RV spaces, such energy use shall be absorbed in the tenant's rental charge which cannot vary month to month. Where the master-metered RV park owner/operator installed submeters prior to May 15, 1962 (see condition a. above), the owner/operator may bill the RV park tenants for such energy use, provided the billings are calculated using the same rate schedules PG&E uses for billing its customers. Where the master-metered RV park owner/operator submeters the electric service to the permanent-residence RV park spaces under Schedule ESR (see conditions b. and c. above), the owner/operator will bill the prepaid monthly tenants for such energy use using the same rate schedules PG&E uses for billing its residential customers.

ELECTRIC VEHICLES As provided by Public Utilities Code Section 216(i), a customer who owns, controls, operates or manages a facility that supplies electricity to the public only for use to charge light duty plug-in electric vehicles is not a public utility and therefore may resell electricity without regard to this Rule. As provided by California Public Utilities Commission Decision No. 20-09-025, a customer who owns, controls, operates or manages a facility that supplies electricity to the public only for use to charge medium duty, heavy duty, or off-road plug-in electric vehicles or off-road electrical equipment is not a public utility and therefore may resell electricity without regard to this Rule. Such resale of electricity for electric vehicle charging does not affect the Commission’s authority under Public Utilities Code Sections 454, 740.2, or any other applicable statute. D. TESTING OF SUBMETERS As a condition of service for submetering, where electric energy is furnished in accordance with Paragraphs C.1., C.2., C.3, and C.4. above, customers using submeters as a basis for charges for electricity shall submit to PG&E certification by a meter testing laboratory, satisfactory to PG&E, as to the accuracy of the submeters upon initial installation of such submeters, or for existing submeters upon request of PG&E. As a further condition of service for submetering, the customer shall agree that he will be governed by PG&E's Rule 17, Meter Tests and Adjustment of Bills for Meter Error, with the exception that the word "subcustomer" be substituted for "customer" and the words "Utility's customer" be substituted for "Company." As a further condition of service for submetering, the customer shall agree that PG&E may inspect and examine customer's billing procedures from time to time to determine that such service is made in accordance with this rule or as otherwise may be authorized by the Commission. E. In the event such energy is furnished or resold otherwise than as provided for above, PG&E may either discontinue service to the customer or, where feasible, furnish electric energy directly to the subcustomer in accordance with PG&E's tariff on file with the Commission.

SEPARATE METERING Separate premises, even though owned by the same customer, will not be supplied through the same meter, except as may be specifically provided for in the applicable rate schedule. B. OTHER USES OR PREMISES A customer shall not furnish or use electricity received from PG&E upon premises, or for purposes, other than those specified in his the customer’s application for service except: 1. For PG&E’s Operating Convenience as defined in PG&E’s Rule 1, or 2. Where, pursuant to D.21-01-018, microgrids owned by public agencies1 or third-party that primarily serves a facility operated by, or on behalf of, a public agency are permitted to supply electricity to a critical facility2 owned or operated by, or on behalf of, a public agency on an adjacent Premises to conduct emergency and/or critical operations during a grid outage. The public agency, third-party owner of the microgrid, or the customer at the adjoining Premises is required to install a device, subject to PG&E’s review and approval, that prohibits parallel operations of the service line between the Premises during normal operation. This exception is subject to the limitation of Public Utilities Code Section 218. Additionally, this exception is available until PG&E has reached the cap adopted in D.21-01-018 of ten projects that have completed the interconnection process and received permission to operate in PG&E’s service territory. _______________________ 1 Public agencies for purposes of this exception are defined as state, county, local, and tribal agencies. For purposes of this exception, a facility is considered a critical facility if it is included in PG&E’s existing critical facilities list. The critical facilities list is developed and managed by PG&E in partnership with local government, and subject to the process adopted by the CPUC in D.19-05-042 and subsequent decisions. 2 (Continued) Advice Decision 1649-E Issued by Robert S.

Where a customer or his predecessors in interest on the same premises was a customer on December 14, 1981, and submeters and furnishes electricity to residential tenants at the same rates and charges that would be applicable if the user were purchasing such electricity directly from PG&E; or d. Where a mobile home park or manufactured housing community developer, owner or operator who installs, owns and operates the electric distribution system within the park, submeters and furnishes electricity to residential tenants in each occupancy, charges the same rates that would be applicable if the user were purchasing such electricity directly from PG&E, unless construction of a new mobilehome park, or manufactured housing community commenced after January 1, 1997.

RESIDENTIAL SERVICE (Cont’d.) e. 2. Nothing in this section shall prevent PG&E from furnishing separatelymetered service to electric equipment used in common by residential tenants or owners. NONRESIDENTIAL SERVICE PG&E will furnish and meter electricity to each individual nonresidential premises or space, except: a. Where electricity is furnished under a rate schedule that specifically provides for resale service; or b. Where a customer is receiving electricity through a single meter and the cost of electricity is absorbed in the rental for the individual premises or spaces, there is no separate identifiable charge by such customer to the tenants for electricity, and the rent does not vary with electric consumption; or where all of the following conditions are met: 1) Service is supplied to a high rise building* which is owned or managed by a single entity on a single premises; and 2) Where a master-meter customer installs, owns, and maintains electric submeters on its existing building’s distribution system for cost allocation of dynamic pricing and/or conservation incentive purposes the cost of electricity allocated to the commercial building tenants will be billed at the same rate as the master meter billed by PG&E under the CPUC approved rate schedule servicing the master meter. c. Where, in the sole opinion of PG&E, it is impractical for PG&E to meter individually each premises or space. In such a case, PG&E will meter those premises or spaces that it is practical to meter, if any. d.

FURNISHING AND METERING OF ELECTRICITY (Cont'd.) 3. MARINAS AND SMALL CRAFT HARBORS Notwithstanding any other provision of this rule, PG&E will furnish electrical service to the master-meter customer at a privately or publicly owned marina or small craft harbor. The master-meter customer may submeter individual slips or berths at the marina or harbor but may not submeter any land-based facility or tenant. If the master-meter customer submeters and furnishes electricity to individual slips or berths, the rates and charges to the user must not exceed those that would apply if the user were purchasing such electricity directly from PG&E. 4. COLD-IRONING LOAD Cold-ironing load is defined as the use of shore-supplied electricity for the lights, heating, cooling, machinery, and other needs of an ocean-going vessel while at berth or otherwise electrically connected, as replacement for the vessel’s auxiliary internal electric generation. a. A master-metered customer may submeter a ship’s cold-ironing load aboard an ocean-going vessel at the Port of San Francisco or the Port of Oakland but may not submeter any other load or land-based facility. b. If the master-metered customer submeters cold-ironing load to an oceangoing vessel, the rates and charges to the sub-metered user must not exceed those rates and charges the master-metered customer is billed by PG&E for such services. 5. RECREATIONAL VEHICLE (RV) PARKS PG&E will provide electric service to all spaces in an RV park through one meter unless the condition under c. below applies.

RECREATIONAL VEHICLE (RV) PARKS (Cont'd.) Under no circumstances shall an RV park owner/operator install submeters and bill the tenants for submetered energy use unless condition a., b., or c. below applies and the provisions of Section D. below are met: a. Where the RV park owner/operator installed a submetering system prior to May 15, 1962. b. Where the RV park owner/operator rents all of the RV spaces on a prepaid monthly basis to RV units used as permanent residences and qualifies for service under Schedule ESR. c. Where a master-metered RV park owner/operator rents RV spaces on a prepaid monthly basis to permanent-residence RV units and on a daily/weekly basis to transient RV units and arranges the electric distribution system in accordance with PG&E's applicable tariffs so that all electricity to the permanent-residence RV spaces is supplied through a separate PG&E meter. In this situation, only the separately metered portion of the RV park where all of the spaces are rented on a prepaid monthly basis to permanentresidence RV units can be submetered and would qualify for service under Schedule ESR. Where the master-metered RV park owner/operator does not submeter the electric service to the RV spaces, such energy use shall be absorbed in the tenant's rental charge which cannot vary month to month. Where the master-metered RV park owner/operator installed submeters prior to May 15, 1962 (see condition a. above), the owner/operator may bill the RV park tenants for such energy use, provided the billings are calculated using the same rate schedules PG&E uses for billing its customers. Where the master-metered RV park owner/operator submeters the electric service to the permanent-residence RV park spaces under Schedule ESR (see conditions b. and c. above), the owner/operator will bill the prepaid monthly tenants for such energy use using the same rate schedules PG&E uses for billing its residential customers.

ELECTRIC VEHICLES As provided by Public Utilities Code Section 216(i), a customer who owns, controls, operates or manages a facility that supplies electricity to the public only for use to charge light duty plug-in electric vehicles is not a public utility and therefore may resell electricity without regard to this Rule. As provided by California Public Utilities Commission Decision No. 20-09-025, a customer who owns, controls, operates or manages a facility that supplies electricity to the public only for use to charge medium duty, heavy duty, or off-road plug-in electric vehicles or off-road electrical equipment is not a public utility and therefore may resell electricity without regard to this Rule. Such resale of electricity for electric vehicle charging does not affect the Commission’s authority under Public Utilities Code Sections 454, 740.2, or any other applicable statute. D. TESTING OF SUBMETERS As a condition of service for submetering, where electric energy is furnished in accordance with Paragraphs C.1., C.2., C.3, and C.4. above, customers using submeters as a basis for charges for electricity shall submit to PG&E certification by a meter testing laboratory, satisfactory to PG&E, as to the accuracy of the submeters upon initial installation of such submeters, or for existing submeters upon request of PG&E. As a further condition of service for submetering, the customer shall agree that he will be governed by PG&E's Rule 17, Meter Tests and Adjustment of Bills for Meter Error, with the exception that the word "subcustomer" be substituted for "customer" and the words "Utility's customer" be substituted for "Company." As a further condition of service for submetering, the customer shall agree that PG&E may inspect and examine customer's billing procedures from time to time to determine that such service is made in accordance with this rule or as otherwise may be authorized by the Commission. E. In the event such energy is furnished or resold otherwise than as provided for above, PG&E may either discontinue service to the customer or, where feasible, furnish electric energy directly to the subcustomer in accordance with PG&E's tariff on file with the Commission.
