The District of Columbia PSC adopted as final various changes to its RPS rules to reflect recently passed language concerning changes to the RPS
As previously reported, the legislation grandfathered existing retail supply contracts from certain new RPS requirements
However, the PSC ruled that to implement such grandfathering, suppliers will have to report details of each specific contract.
The final rule states that suppliers' RPS reports shall include:
For Compliance Years 2019, 2020, and 2021 include:
(1) The number of the energy supply contracts that were executed prior to March 22, 2019, the effective date of the CleanEnergy DC Omnibus Amendment Act of 2018 (CleanEnergy Act) (D.C. Law 22-257);
(2) The length of each such energy supply contract; and
(3) The amount of electricity sold pursuant to each such energy supply contract for the Compliance Year that is the subject of the compliance report being filed and an aggregated estimate of the amount of electricity to be sold pursuant to all such energy supply contracts for each Compliance Year through 2021. However, no estimates shall be required for inclusion in the compliance report for Compliance Year 2021.
WGL Energy had argued that, consistent with past practice, such information should be reported in aggregate, rather than by contract
The PSC rejected this proposal
"While the Commission understands that this may be burdensome on suppliers, the Commission is bound by statute to require electricity suppliers to report this information for each contract in their compliance reports for the years 2019, 2020 and 2021," the PSC said
