ReMAT Feed-in Tariff (Senate Bill 32)
PG&E’s Electric-Renewable Market Adjusting Tariff (E-ReMAT) became effective on July 24, 2013. E-ReMAT was established by CPUC Decisions (D.) 12-05-035 and D.13-05-034 to implement Senate Bill (SB) 32, which increased the statewide procurement renewable target from 500 MW to 750 MW (applicable to both investor owned utilites and public owned utilities) and increased the eligible project size from 1.5 MW to 3 MW (AC). Program Participation Requests (PPRs) can be submitted beginning on October 1, 2013, and the first ReMAT Program Period will begin on November 1, 2013.

Product Types & Pricing
There are three Product Types: As-Available Peaking, As-Available Non-Peaking, and Baseload. The Contract Price for all three Product Types will begin at $89.23/MWh on November 1, 2013, when the first ReMAT Program Period begins (Period 1). The Contract price for each Product Type will adjust independently, based on market subscription in that Product Type, in each subsequent bi-monthly Program Period. The ReMAT pricing mechanism is described in Section H of the E-ReMAT Tariff.

From August 20th to August 30th, PG&E conducted a “Test Launch” of the online platform developed for ReMAT implementation. The Test Launch familiarized potential Applicants with the platform and allowed PG&E to solicit valuable feedback before the platform is finalized and launched. The platform has been temporarily taken offline to allow PG&E to make improvements. It will be made available once again by October 1st.
