IPA: Group A Small DG Block 2 Opening Capacity

27 Apr 2020 1:51 PM | Anonymous

Upon the closure of Group A Small DG Block 1 on March 31, 2020 at 4:59pm, the opening capacity of Group A Small DG Block 2 is 16.725 MWac.

The Program Administrator announced on April 1, 2020 that Group A Small DG Block 1 had closed. Per Section 6.3.2 of the Revised Long-Term Plan, this Block was held open for an additional 7 calendar days beyond the date on which it had reached capacity. Any Group A Small DG applications submitted as part of a paid batch on or prior to March 31, 2020 at 4:59 PM Central Prevailing Time were allocated to Block 1, and thus received Block 1 pricing, provided that the application fee was paid within 10 business days following batch submittal. Any Group A Small DG applications submitted as part of a paid batch after that time will be allocated to Block 2.

The capacity allocated to Block 1 during this 7-day soft close period impacts the capacity available for Block 2. Any applications submitted as part of a paid batch during the soft close period that exceeded the original 22 MW capacity of Group A Small DG Block 1 were deducted from the original capacity of 22 MW for Group A Small DG Block 2. Because an additional 5.275 MW of capacity was allocated to Group A Small DG Block 1 during the soft close period (for a total of 27.275 MW of Block 1 capacity), Group A Small DG Block 2 has an opening capacity of 16.725 MW, not the original capacity of 22 MW.

The final calculation of the opening capacity of Group A Small DG Block 2 was not known until at least 10 business days had passed from the closure of Block 1. Capacity allocated to projects in Group A Small DG Block 1 that are subsequently withdrawn will be added to Group A Small DG Block 2 capacity.
