  • June 25, 2012:  Net Energy Metering (NEM) Workshop to Discuss Methods for Calculating Non-Coincident Aggregate Customer Peak Demand

    Net metering allows customers who install small (1MW or less) distributed generation facilities to receive full-retail credit for power generated by their onsite system and fed back to the utility.  Pursuant to Public Utilities Code 2827, the net metering program cap is defined as 5 percent of a utility's aggregate customer peak demand.  In Decision 12-05-036, the Commission clarified that aggregate customer peak demand means sum of individual customer's non-coincident peak demand; the purpose of this workshop is to discuss the methods for estimating individual non-coincident peak demand.  
  • February 15, 2012:  Workshop on Cost Reporting in CSI for Third-Party Owners

    Over time, the proportion of CSI systems owned by third parties i.e. by parties other than the host customers--has grown substantially.  Because these systems involve no sale to the host customer, determining the value to report for "Project Cost" presents challenges to third party owners.  This workshop was convened by the CSI Program Administrators to examine ways in which third party owners are reporting "Project Cost", to review the policy goals behind this reporting effort, and to discuss possible approaches.
