Renewable Feed-In Tariff (FIT) Program  

Updated 2/7/2017 

The Renewable Market Adjusting Tariff (ReMAT) is a feed-in tariff program for small renewable generators less than 3 MW in size. (Small bioenergy generators are procured through the Bioenergy Market Adjusting Tariff). Through the ReMAT program up to 493.6 MW of capacity are available to eligible projects through a fixed-price standard contract to export electricity to California’s three large investor owned utilities (IOUs). Electricity generated as part of the ReMAT program counts towards the utilities’ RPS targets. The ReMAT Program replaced the AB 1969 Feed-in Tariff Program in 2013. The amount for each IOU is:

 

  • Pacific Gas & Electric: 218.8 MW
  • Southern California Edison: 226.0 MW
  • San Diego Gas & Electric: 48.8 MW

 

On October, 1 2013, the IOUs launched the ReMAT Program by accepting applications for the first bi-monthly program period (November 1, 2013 – December 31, 2013). As of December 31, 2016, the IOUs had completed 19 program periods.

Implementation is ongoing for AB 1979 (Bigelow, 2016) and a timeline for implementation is currently not available. As information becomes available it will be served to the Rulemaking R.15-02-020 service list.
