Meeting Minutes

February 13, 2014

Agenda               

  1. Antitrust Warning
     
  2. Legislative Issues:
     
  • PV Recycling Update
    • SEIA, LSA and CalSEIA met with Senator Monning’s office regarding PV recycling legislation.
    •  Despite discussion of the industry’s concerns with EPR legislation at this time, staff indicated that Senator Monning plans to introduce a bill tomorrow (February 14th).
       
  • AB 1499 (Skinner)- SGIP Extension
    • Funding for the SGIP Program is currently only authorized until the end of 2014. As drafted, AB 1499 would give the CPUC authority to require utilities to collect SGIP funds through 2015, and allow the CPUC to continue administration of the Program until January 1, 2017.
    • SEIA members discussed the bill and agreed SEIA should support the measure.
       

  3.   Regulatory Issues:

  • SEIA Reply Comments: RAM Reauthorization
    • Based upon member feedback, SEIA plans to submit individual reply comments which first support each of the points made in LSA’s reply comments, but then goes a step further to specifically oppose termination or consolidation of SCE’s SPV Program on the grounds that 1) it is procedurally inappropriate and 2) the Program was established to meet certain goals which would not be achieved through termination or consolidation of the Program MW.
    • Reply comments are due tomorrow; members are asked to provide feedback or edits to Steve before the end of the day.
       
  • PG&E PV Program Petition
    • PG&E’s Advice Letter (December 2012) seeking to terminate their PV Program and procure the remaining MWs utilizing the RAM protocol was rejected last week on procedural grounds. PG&E has since made a similar proposal via a Petition for Modification, as requested by the Commission.
    • However, PG&E now requests to hold a 3rd PV solicitation at the same time as RAM 5 (June 2014) and transfer the remaining MWs to the RAM protocol thereafter.
    • Members are asked to provide Steve with feedback on whether SEIA should weigh in in support or opposition to PG&E’s Petition, and whether there are any perceived challenges with holding a 3rd PV solicitation at the same time as the next RAM auction.
       
  • SEIA Comments: Resource Adequacy Staff Proposal (ELCC)
    • Draft comments have been distributed regarding the CPUC Staff proposal on the Effective Load-Carrying Capability (ELCC) methodology for solar and wind. The comments have been drafted by consultant Udi Helman on behalf of SEIA and LSA with LSA. Tom Beach also plans to review.
    • Given the impacts the proposed methodology changes could have on wholesale solar capacity valuation, as well as potentially factor in to how rooftop DG is valued in the future, members are encouraged to review and provide feedback prior to submission Tuesday, February 18th.
       
  • SCE Advice Letter: RAM PPA Changes 
    • SCE has filed an Advice Letter requesting certain changes to its RAM PPA and RFO process in advance of the June 2014 auction.  
    •  SCE has included a number of proposed changes, including changes to curtailment provisions, the addition of a termination right for SCE if estimated network upgrade costs exceed the Network Upgrade Cost Cap, the addition of a seller “buy-down right” allowing the seller to exercise an option to pay for the costs above the Network Upgrade Cost Cap to prevent termination of the contract, and changes to full-deliverability RA terms, among others.
    • Please let Steve know if you feel SEIA should protest any of SCE’s proposed changes. The deadline to do so is February 27th.
       
  • Smart Inverter Working Group Recommendations
    • The ALJ has entered the latest round of recommendations from the Rule 21 Smart Inverter Working Group into the public record and has scheduled a  prehearing conference for next Wednesday, February 19th.  CPUC staff has indicated the prehearing conference is not intended to touch upon the specific recommendations of the Smart Inverter Working Group.
    • SEIA’s Codes and Standards Working Group is working to establish a formal SEIA position on the Smart Inverter Working Group recommendations in advance of the prehearing conference.
