3 Making Clean Local Energy Accessible Now 3 Wholesale DG is the Critical & Missing Segment Distribution Grid Transmission Grid Project Size Wholesale DG Serves Local Loads Behind the Meter

4 Making Clean Local Energy Accessible Now 4 Wholesale DG Leader: Germany Solar Markets: Germany vs California (RPS + CSI + other) Germany added over 7 times more solar than California in 2012, even though Californias solar resource is 70% better!!! Sources: CPUC, CEC, SEIA and German equivalents. Cumulative MW

5 Making Clean Local Energy Accessible Now 5 German Solar Capacity is Small WDG (Rooftops) Source: Paul Gipe, March 2011 Germanys deployed solar capacity is essentially 100% WDG and about 90% is on rooftops 22.5% 26% 23.25% 9.25% 19%

6 Making Clean Local Energy Accessible Now 6 German Solar Pricing Translates to 5 cents/kWh Project SizeEuros/kWhUSD/kWh California Effective Rate $/kWh Under 10 kW kW to 40 kW kW to 1 MW MW to 10 MW Conversion rate for Euros to Dollars is 1:$1.309 Californias effective rate is reduced 40% due to tax incentives and then an additional 33% due to the superior solar resource Source: 10 September 2013 Replicating German scale and efficiencies would yield rooftop solar at only between 5 and 7 cents/kWh to California ratepayers

7 Making Clean Local Energy Accessible Now 7 Policy/ProgramTypeMarket Results Gainesville, FL FIT Program Municipal Program German Style Feed-in Tariff Installed solar grew 53x Local companies grew > 3x Vermont SPEED 2009 Legislation Statewide Program FIT converted to RFP Original 50 MW program expanded to MW in 2012, then oversubscribed Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD) Municipal Program Value-based CLEAN Program 100 MW installed < 2 years Equivalent to 2.5 GW across CA Wholesale DG in the US (sample) California AB Legislation State Legislation Value-based Standard Offer 2+ years of no uptake Fully subscribed with drop in PV costs AR, IA, OR, ME 2013 CLEAN bills State Legislation Variety of CLEAN designs Introduced legislation all held or died in the process Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) CLEAN Solar-II Municipal ProgramSuccessful 50 MW led to 100 MW expansion Minnesota HF Legislation State Legislation Pseudo-CLEAN Program Unlimited program with value of solar methodology Georgia Power Advanced Solar Initiative Regulated Utility Program Mixed CLEAN / RFP 735 MW total over 5 years Initial allocation heavily oversubscribed

10 Making Clean Local Energy Accessible Now 10 CLEAN Programs Defined CLEAN = Clean Local Energy Accessible Now CLEAN Program Features: Procurement: Standard and guaranteed contract between the utility and a renewable energy facility owner to purchase 100% of generation at a predefined rate for a long duration Interconnection: Predictable, streamlined distribution grid access Financing: Low-risk contracts will attract lower-interest financing

11 Making Clean Local Energy Accessible Now 11 Fictional Advocacy Group – AZ Energy Futurists Lets take advantage of our most abundant renewable resource – the sun - with a CLEAN Program for Arizona focused on wholesale distributed solar PV Arizona is actively talking about the value of solar energy, so lets make sure we highlight all the benefits of distributed PV. Our campaign will be called AZ CLEAN CRH Scenario: Arizona Start Campaign Start Campaign

23 Making Clean Local Energy Accessible Now 23 Model Interconnection Tariff for Wholesale DG Clear and simple standards and procedures reduce errors and uncertainty, allowing applications to be handled consistently and without delay Clear cost determination is the overriding issue for developers decisions and for a successful interconnection process Current grid information should be maintained and readily available to generation interconnection staff and developers Review Screens: is the aggregate Generating Facility capacity on the line section less than 100% of the section minimum load? Timelines: Within fifteen (15) days following determination of Simplified Interconnection…the Utility shall tender a draft Interconnection Agreement Model Tariffs

24 Making Clean Local Energy Accessible Now 24 Model Tariffs and Contracts are full best practice examples, including actual legal language and detailed justifications Model Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) Seller hereby provides and conveys all Green Attributes associated with all electricity generation from the Project to Buyer as part of the Product being delivered. Buyer shall pay Seller the Contract Price for the Product that Seller would have been able to deliver but for the Unforced Curtailment Order a collateral requirement equal to twenty dollars ($20.00) if Contract Capacity is less than 1,000 kW, or fifty dollars ($50.00) if Contract Capacity is greater than or equal to 1,000 kW, for each kilowatt of the Contract Capacity Seller may, without Buyers consent, transfer, sell, pledge, encumber or assign this Agreement or the accounts, revenues or proceeds hereof to its Lender Model Contracts

25 Making Clean Local Energy Accessible Now 25 Rule TypeExample EligibilityCapacity limited to 100% minimum coincident load (no backflow) Seller ConcentrationNo single developer can have contracts for more than X% of allocated capacity based on size of overall program ViabilityDevelopment Security of $20/KW TimelinesCommercial Online Date (COD) within 18 months with permitted extensions InterconnectionInitial interconnection cost study completed before contract execution Guides: CLEAN Program Rules
