Electric rates for other services
> Net Metering (Schedule 200) summary
Net Metering is for customers who can use all of their generation under 100 kW on an annual basis. For customers interested in generating their own electricity, check out our Solar Options for program information.
PUD charges for electric energy are adjusted as follows:
The customer shall pay for the net energy used by the customer in accordance with the following formula: (a) the customer shall pay the applicable energy charge for all net electric energy used in any billing period in excess of the amount of electricity produced by the customer during that billing period; (b) the customer shall receive a credit for all electric energy produced during a billing period in excess of the amount of electric energy supplied by the PUD during that period, such credit to be applied to the customer’s future electric bills, except that; (c) any energy balance remaining in favor of the customer under the provisions of subparagraph 5(F) on March 31 of any calendar year shall be zeroed out with no further liability to the PUD and no credit to the customer for that balance.
The price for electric energy provided to or credited to a customer under the Net Metering Program shall be the price charged for such electric energy by the PUD under the provisions of the rate schedule under which the customer receives service, as such rate schedule may be revised from time to time by the PUD’s Board of Commissioners.
The Net Metering Program billing adjustment only reduces the number of kWh consumed for purposes of calculating the energy charge. The net metering of electricity shall not reduce the customer’s bill to less than the sum of other charges.
> Facilities smaller than 100 kW (Schedule 90) summary
This rate schedule is for customers who cannot use all of their generation on an annual basis and wish to sell power back to the PUD.
The PUD shall purchase power from an eligible facility at a rate equal to the energy component of the retail rate at which the PUD provides electrical service to the facility. Energy component means the annual average cost in cents per kWh of electricity excluding any Washington State revenue taxes.
Such rate may be modified by Commission resolution, subject to the criteria set forth in the PUD’s Cogeneration and Small Power Production Service Policy, and FERC rules adopted pursuant to PURPA, Section 210.
