SCE GHG - Free Energy Allocation Information
SCE Advice Letter 4194-E, dated April 17, 2020, sets 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 Clean Power Alliance (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 pending a final decision on portfolio optimization in Rulemaking (R.)17-06-026, the Power Charge Indifference Adjustment Order Instituting Rulemaking (the “PCIA OIR”). To ensure rapid implementation, the interim allocation intentionally differs from the proposal put forth in the PCIA OIR.
SCE will provide LSEs notice of a 30 calendar day enrollment and election window from September 1-30, 2020 to elect to participate in the 2020 and/or 2021 allocations.
The Term Sheet submitted with Advice Letter 4194-E will govern the interim allocations. 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.
