The District of Columbia PSC has scheduled for May 7 a meeting of the Standard Offer Service (SOS) Working Group to address the PSC's recent order requiring that 5% of electricity default service be sourced from long-term renewable PPAs
The PSC directed that the May 7 Working Group meeting shall:
(1) address the requirements for a draft request for proposals for long-term renewable energy purchase power agreements ("PPA") for electricity generated by solar or wind power facilities located within the PJM Interconnection region ("PJM") to provide a target quantity of five (5) percent of the SOS load;
(2) review the SOS rules to determine whether and how they need to be revised to accommodate the introduction of long-term renewable energy PPAs into the SOS procurement portfolio;
(3) consider the feasibility of increasing the percentage of SOS load served by long-term renewable energy PPAs to up to 10 percent in the future; and
(4) consider the feasibility of using some part of the 100 MWs wind facility Exelon is required to develop pursuant to the merger commitment in the Exelon-Pepco merger to satisfy some or all of the target quantity of five (5) percent of the SOS load through long-term renewable energy PPAs, and whether this renewable generation could be used to provide additional SOS load beyond five (5) percent in the future.
Persons interested in participating in the SOS Working Group should notify the Commission of their intent to attend no later than noon, Wednesday, May 1, 2019, by sending an email including: (1) the participant’s name and organization, if applicable; and (2) whether the participant will participate in-person or remotely to psc-commissionsecretary (at) dc.gov – subject "Standard Offer Service Working Group Meeting."
