No. PG&E will initiate the disenrollment from PDP only when the customer is successfully set up in the California Independent System Operator’s (CAISO) demand response systems. The start date for the CAISO customer location must be later than or equal to the customer's effective PDP disenrollment date. The comma-separated values (CSV) file that PG&E sends to third-party DRPs includes several data elements to enable DRPs to determine the customer's earliest future PDP disenrollment date and in turn, determine the CAISO location start date. PDP disenrollment dates that occur after the CAISO location start date will result in the rejection of the customer location by the Utility Distribution Company (UDC) in accordance with the Rule 24 restriction on dual participation.
To help ensure that a customer is de-enrolled from PDP prior to the effective start date of the CAISO customer location, PG&E strongly recommends that the customer initiate the de-enrollment process by contacting the customer's PG&E account representative or calling 1-800-PGE-5000. Once the customer has been removed from PDP, the DRP should submit the customer location to the CAISO.
Electric rate schedules with a PDP option include: A-1, A-6, A-10, E-19, E-20, AG-4, and AG-5.
No. The customer will need to initiate the de-enrollment from BIP. Here are the options for de-enrolling:
PG&E can accept a CAISO customer location for an active BIP participant so long as (1) the BIP de-enrollment date has been determined by PG&E; and (2) the CAISO customer location start date is later than or equal to the effective BIP de-enrollment date. BIP de-enrollment dates that occur after the CAISO location start date will result in the rejection of the location by the UDC in accordance with the Rule 24 restriction on dual participation.
Yes. The customer will need to submit a CBP or BIP Delete form to the APX MarketSuite. Within the Delete form, the customer will have the option to specify a future disenrollment date by populating the Desired Form Effective Date located on the Delete form. See example screen shot below.
CBP or BIP disenrollment dates that occur after the CAISO registration start date will result in the rejection of the registration by the UDC in accordance with the Rule 24 restriction on dual participation.
The Rule 24 restriction on dual participation applies to the following event-based programs and rates. Note that this list is subject to change.
Under the CAISO's current processes, the UDC and Load Serving Entity (LSE) review is performed on a combination of data elements that are set by the DRP for the customer location.
Below is a list of data elements obtained by PG&E from the CAISO's systems to support the validation process:
PG&E will also confirm that the customer location is not enrolled in a PG&E event-based DR program during the effective date range of the location.
No. While DRPs serving PG&E bundled customers are required to execute the DRP Service Agreement with PG&E before providing DR services within PG&E's service territory, this requirement is completely independent of the timing for when DRPs may submit CISR-DRP forms to PG&E.
Yes. PG&E is the Meter Service Provider (MSP) and Meter Data Management Agent (MDMA) for CCA customers, so all of the data flows the same as for bundled customers.
PG&E will provide the relevant data to the extent the data is available to PG&E. In cases where PG&E is not the Meter Data Management Agent (MDMA) for the Direct Access customer, the relevant MDMA will be responsible for providing the data to the DRP.
The interval data is available through PG&E's ShareMyData platform.
Yes. PG&E will provide a list of rejected CISRs to the appropriate DRP and include the underlying reason for the rejection of each CISR.
