ReMAT Feed-in Tariff (Senate Bill 32)

Overview

PG&E's Electric-Renewable Market Adjusting Tariff (E-ReMAT) became effective on July 24, 2013. E-ReMAT was established by CPUC Decisions (D.) 12-05-035 (PDF, 407 KB) and (D.) 13-05-034 (PDF, 927 KB) to implement Senate Bill (SB) 32, which increased the statewide procurement renewable target from 500 MW to 750 MW (applicable to both investor owned utilities and public owned utilities) and increased the eligible project size from 1.5 MW to 3 MW (AC). PG&E began accepting Program Participation Requests (PPRs) on October 2, 2013. The first ReMAT Program Period commenced on November 1, 2013.

 

UPDATE: PG&E updated TOD factors in Appendix C of the PPA. New TODs will be utilized starting with Program Period 15 (March 1, 2016).

ReMAT Capacity Allocation, Categories & Pricing Overview

Per D. 12.05-035, PG&E was allocated 218.8 MW of the 750 MW total statewide goal. This capacity allocation, reduced by capacity contracted for under the E-PWF and E-SRG tariffs, was made available under the E-ReMAT Tariff. The Effective Date was July 24, 2013. There are three Product Types: As-Available Peaking, As-Available Non-Peaking, and Baseload. The Contract Price for all three Product Types began at $89.23/MWh in Program Period 1, which commenced on November 1, 2013. The Contract price for each Product Type adjusts independently, based on market subscription in that Product Type, in each bi-monthly Program Period. The ReMAT pricing mechanism is described in Section H of the E-ReMAT Tariff.
