Effective for all bills rendered after January 1, 2012

Applicability

To residential and general service/commercial Customers with installed qualifying generating equipment and have entered into a Net-Metering Interconnection Agreement with the PUD.

Net-Metered generation is supplied to the PUD from a Customer that operated an interconnected power production facility using solar, wind, fuel cells, hydroelectric, digester gas, waste or other qualifying facility as identified the PUD’s Net-Metering Interconnection Agreement where the generating nameplate capacity is 25 KW or less for residential Customers and 2 MW or less for general service/commercial Customers.

Character of Service

Sixty hertz alternating current at such phases and voltage as the PUD may have available.

Monthly Rate

Avoided Cost Energy Credit: 

For All kWh:  $ -0.03083

Monthly Charge

The Customer-generator shall pay all monthly charges (including the Customer Charge, Energy, Demand and Power Factor Charges) as applicable in accordance with the Customer’s service option and will receive an annual kWh credit as described below. The accumulated Net Metering energy credit for the net excess kWh Energy will be applied to the Customer’s bill in March each year based on the annual Avoided Cost Energy Rate.

Each separately metered Qualifying Facility (QF) not associated with a retail Customer account will be charged $10.00 per month.

Basis For Power Purchase Price

The power purchase rates are based on the PUD’s Avoided Costs. Avoided Costs are defined in 18 CFR 292.101(6) as “the incremental costs to an electric utility of electric energy or capacity or both which, but for the purchase from the qualifying facility or qualifying facilities, such utility would generate itself or purchase from another source.”

The PUD’s Avoided Cost is based on the forecasted BPA PF wholesale power rate annualized for the current BPA fiscal year ending September 30.

Pricing Options

Pricing represents the purchase price per kWh the PUD will pay for all electricity delivered to a Point of Delivery within the PUD’s service territory pursuant to a Net-Meter Interconnection Agreement including any Energy delivered in excess of the nameplate rating.

Other Charges and Conditions

All other charges and conditions shall be pursuant to the General Terms, Conditions, Rules and Regulations for Electric Service and the Net-Metering Interconnection Agreement.
