ReMAT Feed-in Tariff (Senate Bill 32)

Overview

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). Since October 2, 2013, PG&E began accepting Program Participation Requests (PPRs). The first ReMAT Program Period commenced on November 1, 2013.

ReMAT Capacity Allocation, Product Types & Pricing Overview

Per (D.) 12-05-035, the initial program capacity that PG&E was allocated 218.8 MW of the 750 MW total statewide goal. This capacity allocation, reduced by capacity contracted for under the E-PWF and E-SRG tariffs, was made available under the E-ReMAT Tariff. The Effective Date was July 24, 2013.

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.
