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, 1374 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. The E-ReMAT Program was suspended by the CPUC in December 2017 pursuant to a federal district court order. Following the suspension, the CPUC revised the program in CPUC Decision (D.) 20-10-005 (PDF, 2330 KB). The revised E-ReMAT Program became effective on January 22, 2021. PG&E resumed accepting PPRs on February 5, 2021.
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. There are three Product Types: As-Available Peaking, As-Available Non-Peaking, and Baseload. The ReMAT pricing mechanism is described in Section H of the E-ReMAT Tariff.
