Substitute Sheets for Advice 6141-E

Dear Energy Division Tariff Unit:
An original and 1 copy of substitute sheets are attached for Advice 6141-E,
“Modification of Electric Rule 21 for Qualifying Non-export and Limited Export
Inverters to Use a Time-of-Year Maximum Monthly Export Value Settings
Pursuant to Decision 20-09-035 Ordering Paragraphs 51 and 15.” submitted on
March 30, 2021.
In PG&E’s Advice Letter 6141-E, PG&E inadverdently switched Ordering
Paragraph (OP) 15’s timeline requirements with OP 51’s timeline requirements in
the table on page 8. These substitute sheets revise the advice letter, so the
timeline requirements match with their corresponding Ordering Paragraph.
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 page of Sheet 8 is attached. Please discard the previously
submitted pages.
Please call me at (415) 973-4587 should you have any questions regarding the
substitute sheets.
