SCE Advice Letter 4194-E, and Resolution E-5095, set forth a Proposal for an interim mechanism for voluntary allocations of Greenhouse Gas-Free (GHG-Free) Energy pursuant to the Term Sheet attached thereto (the “Proposal”). The mechanism will permit CPA and other load serving entities (LSE) in SCE’s service area, including Community Choice Aggregators (CCAs) and Electric Service Providers (ESPs) whose customers pay Cost Responsibility Surcharges (CRS), to elect to receive annual allocations of GHG-Free Energy from SCE’s procurement portfolio on an interim basis.
On May 20, 2021, the Commission issued D.21-05-030 in Rulemaking (R.)17-06-026, the Power Charge Indifference Adjustment Order Instituting Rulemaking (the “PCIA OIR”), authorizing SCE to continue this approach until December 31, 2023. This date was extended to December 31, 2024 in Advice Letter 5071E which was approved on August 9, 2023. SCE is offering its Standard Offer GHG-Free Allocation for Term Year 2024.
SCE will provide Eligible Parties notice of a 30-calendar-day enrollment and election window from November 3-December 4, 2023 to elect to participate in the 2024 allocation.
The Term Sheet submitted with Advice Letter 4194-E will govern the interim allocations; SCE has made changes to address the Term for Term Year 2024. As described in the Term Sheet, the products available for the interim GHG-Free Energy allocations are i) a nuclear pool of resources and (ii) a hydroelectric pool of resources. Eligible LSEs may elect one or both products. Allocation amounts per product are based on a participating LSE’s customers’ actual, vintaged annual load shares relative to the sum total of all other actual loads in each vintage year.
