On November 8, 2018, the Commission issued an order directing Commission Staff to initiate a stakeholder process with the purpose of gathering input to assist Commission Staff with developing rules for defining and establishing a legally enforceable obligation (LEO) under the Public Utility Regulatory Policies Act of 1978.
The topic was part of the Commission's comment proceeding in U-20095.
The rules governing interconnection, distributed generation program and legacy net metering, and PURPA legally enforceable obligation will potentially be combined into a single ruleset. The planned timeframe to develop new rules is nine months with the formal rulemaking process beginning in September 2019 with a target for new rules to be in place sometime in 2020.
Second draft issued February 28, 2020 Draft Interconnection DGLNM LEO Rules- Written comments are requested by the end of the day on Friday, May 1, 2020. Please email your comments and redlined rules documents to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com. All comments and redlined rules documents will be posted on each stakeholder website.
Commission Staff's first draft issued August 28, 2019 draft proposed ruleset.
