Renewable Feed-in Tariffs

Renewable Feed-in Tariffs (FITs) offer long-term wholesale electric energy contracts to eligible generators.

E-ReMAT Feed-in Tariff (Senate Bill 32)

 

-- APPLICATIONS CURRENTLY ACCEPTED --

Senate Bill (SB) 32 amended Public Utilities Code Section 399.20. Amendments included increasing the statewide procurement target from 500 MW to 750 MW (to be implemented by both investor-owned utilities and public-owned utilities) and increasing the eligible project size from 1.5 MW to 3 MW. Per CPUC Decision (D.) 12-05-035 (PDF, 407 KB), PG&E has been 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, is available under the Electric - Renewable Market Adjusting Tariff (E-ReMAT).

 

Per CPUC Decision (D.) 12-05-034 (PDF, 926 KB), the implementation schedule for E-ReMAT is as follows:

  • July 24, 2013: The E-ReMAT tariff is effective and E-SRG and E-PWF tariffs are closed to new applicants.
  • October 1, 2013: PG&E begins accepting Program Participation Requests (PPRs).
  • November 1, 2013: First program period (Period 1) commences.

E-PWF & E-SRG Feed-in Tariffs (Assembly Bill 1969)

 

-- CLOSED TO NEW APPLICANTS --

On February 14, 2008, the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) approved Resolution E-4137 (PDF, 215 KB) pertaining to tariffs and standard contracts for both Public Water and Wastewater Facilities (E-PWF) and Small Renewable Generators (E-SRG). PG&E was allocated 209.206 MW for procurement, which was divided evenly between the E-SRG and E-PWF Electric Schedules (tariffs).

 

The CPUC has since adopted a revised feed-in tariff, based on modifications to Section 399.20 of the Public Utilities Code made by statutes subsequent to Assembly Bill 1969, including Senate Bill (SB) 32. The revised feed-in tariff is called the Electric - Renewable Market Adjusting Tariff (E-ReMAT) and became effective on July 24, 2013. As of this date, E-PWF and E-SRG tariffs are no longer be available to new applicants.
