The Commission should not require VNEM customers to enroll in highly differentiated time-of-use rates, but rather require these customers to take service on the TOU rates of their choice. For example, a residential PG&E customer with VNEM may choose to stay on E-TOU-C instead of being forced to E-ELEC.
The Commission should adopt the same net billing structure for the general VNEM and NEMA sub tariffs, at this time. The Commission finds that the record for the VNEM and NEMA tariffs is insufficient and requires a deeper review.
For VNEM and NEMA customers applying to interconnect to NEMA after the NEM 2.0 Sunset Date, this decision reduces the legacy period to nine years. Applications submitted prior to 4/14/23 grant the 20-year legacy period.
A workshop is scheduled for early 2023 to determine the tariff applicable to VNEM customers after nine years.
The VNEM sub tariff is revised to allow multiple solar arrays on one property to be treated as one generator, with credits allocated across the property.
The Commission should maintain the netting intervals for general VNEM and NEMA sub tariffs as they currently exist
