Applicability
Applicable to all eligible customer - generators, as defined in the California Public Utilities
Code Section 2827 (b)(4), with capacity of more than 10 kilowatts, but not exceeding one
megawatt. PUC Section 2827 provides that a local publicly-owned electric utility may
elect to utilize a co-energy metering program for such customers. Azusa Light & Water
has made such an election.

Territory:
Within the electric service territory of the City of Azusa.

Special Conditions:
  1. All eligible customer-generators with a capacity of more than 10 kilowatts, but not exceeding one megawatt, shall take service under Schedule TOU. The amount of installed customer generation shall be sized to be equal to or less than the customer’s electrical demand.
  2. Following a request for an interconnection by an eligible customer-generator hereunder, Light & Water shall review the impact of the proposed generation facility on its electrical network. The customer-generator shall cooperate to provide any requested information regarding the proposed facility.
  3. Consumption of electricity by eligible customer-generators hereunder shall be priced in accordance with Schedule TOU and the terms contained in this Schedule CEM.
  4. For any generation provided by the eligible customer-generator to Light & Water, the customer shall be credited an amount equal to the generation component specified in Schedule TOU.
  5. This Schedule CEM and the availability of net metering for customer generators shall expire upon the earlier of July 1, 2017 (if allowed by law) or the date Light & Water meets its total net energy and/or co-energy metering limit of 5% of system peak demand.
  6. A customer-generator hereunder may request to aggregate its load pursuant to the provisions of PUB Section 2827. Such request will only be approved if the Azusa Utility Board determines, within 180 days of the request, that the utility’s other customers will not be adversely impacted by such load aggregation. 
  7. Customer-generators approved for interconnection shall be responsible for all expenses of purchasing and installing a time-of-use meter that is capable of measuring total flow of electricity in both directions.
  8. A renewable electrical generation facility used by an eligible customer-generator shall meet all applicable safety and performance standards established by the National Electric Code, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, and accredited testing laboratories, including Underwriters laboratories Inc. and rules of the California Public Utilities Commission regarding safety and reliability. No such generation facility shall adversely impact the electric network of Light & Water or it will be required to be disconnected from Light & Water’s network.
  9. All other applicable and mandated provisions of the Public Utilities Code related to co-energy metering and the associated customer-generator interconnection shall apply as if incorporated herein.
  10. It is the intention that the terms of this Schedule CEM shall comply with the State’s rules & regulations related to Net Metering and Co-Energy Metering. If a court of competent jurisdiction finds that any portion of this Schedule is not legal, the remaining portions of this Schedule shall remain in full force and effect unless subsequently revised by the Azusa Utility Board.
