了解客户生成

爱达荷州电力公司支持太阳能和公平的价格. Customers who install their own generation sources — usually solar, 还有风, 水电, geothermal or fuel cells — can offset some or all of their energy needs. 客户仍然与皇冠现金盘公司的电网保持联系, drawing energy any time they aren’t producing their own power or need more than they can produce.

当某些顾客(那些按附表收费的人), (8和84)产生的能量比它们需要的多, they send it back to hg8868皇冠下载’s grid and earn an energy credit for the excess energy produced. 除了每月固定的服务费, 客户按其净能源使用量收费, which is the amount they use minus the amount they generate over the monthly billing period. This billing structure is called net energy metering, or net metering.

图片描绘了客户产生的净能量, 等于你消耗的能量减去你产生的能量.

现场发电客户定价

2023年5月1日,皇冠现金盘公司 requested changes to its on-site generation offering that are a step toward ensuring fair prices for all customers. hg8868皇冠下载 is seeking approval of a compensation structure that accurately measures an on-site generator’s use of the electrical grid and an excess export energy credit rate that will result in a fair and accurate valuation of customers’ exported energy. The proposed changes follow the Idaho Public Utilities Commission’s (IPUC) acknowledgement of a 分布式能源研究的价值 分析现场发电的收益和成本, 比如住宅屋顶太阳能, on hg8868皇冠下载’s system. 有关拟议更改的更多详细信息, including the methodologies behind the net billing and excess energy export credit rate changes, customers can review hg8868皇冠下载’s proposal on the IPUC’s website.

皇冠现金盘公司的现场发电电价, as with all other tariffs, are not contracts and are subject to change at any time upon order of the IPUC. Changes to the on-site generation tariffs in the future may include, but are not limited to, modifications to rates, billing components, billing structure, compensation structure, and the value for excess energy produced by the customer’s on-site generation system (and thus, 客户将获得的赔偿金额). 这与 爱达荷州住宅能源系统披露法, which requires solar retailers to provide a disclosure reminding potential customers that legislative or regulatory actions can affect or eliminate one’s ability to sell or get credit for any excess power generated by the system and may affect the price or value of that power.

居住祖父制 & 小型一般服务客户

The IPUC grandfat在这里d existing residential and small general service customers with on-site generation as of December 20, 2019 under the rules of hg8868皇冠下载’s current service offering (Case IPC-E-18-15). The IPUC’s grandfathering provisions apply to the on-site generation system, rather than the customer — meaning the original system will remain grandfat在这里d if a customer moves. Grandfat在这里d customers may add a new system (that will not be grandfat在这里d) and maintain grandfat在这里d status for their existing system if they have the two systems metered separately. 祖父期的结束日期是2045年12月20日.

New on-site generation customers are subject to future changes in billing and compensation structure.

附表84客户产生

12月1日, 2020 and January 14, 2021, the IPUC ordered changes to 84年计划 (Customer 能源 Production Net Metering 服务). These changes apply to hg8868皇冠下载’s large commercial, industrial and irrigation (CI&I)按附表84提供净计量服务的客户.

IPUC回应了皇冠现金盘公司的请求,裁定:

  1. 新客户将被要求安装单仪表系统.
  2. Existing customers with two-meter systems will be grandfat在这里d for 25 years under the current offering.
