Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 19 / Monday, January 30, 2006 / Notices case studies will be evaluated to gauge the impact of regulatory mandates, tariffs, rate structures and similar policies on the proliferation of DG, CHP systems and other distributed energy technologies. The second component of the DOE study will address the raterelated issues ‘‘that may impede or otherwise discourage the expansion of’’ distributed energy technologies. Id. section 1817(a)(3). cprice-sewell on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES II. Questions for Public Comment and Request for Data To aid in conducting this study, DOE requests public input/comment that addresses the two issues discussed below. A. Potential Benefits In accordance with section 1817 of EPAct 2005, this study will attempt to identify, discuss and quantify benefits that are received directly or indirectly by three classes of recipients: ‘‘(i) * * * electricity distribution or transmission service provider[s]; (ii) other customers served by an electricity distribution or transmission service provider; and (iii) the general public in the area served by the public utility in which the cogenerator or small power producer is located.’’ Id. section 1817(a)(1)(B)(i)– (iii). In analyzing the potential benefits of DG, CHP and other distributed energy technologies, the study will focus on the following areas: (i) Dynamics of the electric system (grid) including reliability in terms of outages (seconds to hours), power quality (microseconds), and ancillary services (including reactive power or volt-amperes reactive); (ii) Economic ramifications of distributed energy technologies, including reduction of peak power requirements due to on-site generation (based on distribution feeder load duration curves), offsets to investments in generation, transmission or distribution facilities that would otherwise be recovered through rates, and diminished land use effects and rights-of-way acquisitions; and (iii) Physical security and emergency supply of power, including reducing vulnerability of a system to terrorism. To accomplish this aspect of the study, DOE requests case studies, analyses, or reports valuing these potential benefits under varying circumstances for individual DG, CHP facility’’ usually refers to a facility that produces less than 80 megawatts of electricity. Id. Section 796(17)(A). ‘‘Distributed generation’’ (DG) generally applies to energy systems that produce electricity and/or thermal energy at or near the point of use.

Rate-Related Impediments Subsection 1817(a) of EPAct 2005 states that DOE’s study must include, among other things, an analysis of raterelated issues that ‘‘may impede or otherwise discourage the expansion of cogeneration and small power production facilities.’’ Id. Section 1817(a)(2)(B). To evaluate rate-related impediments that may hinder or otherwise discourage the expansion of DG, CHP systems and other distributed energy technologies, this study will analyze whether rates, rules, tariffs, or other requirements imposed on such installations are comparable to rates imposed on other customers of the same class that do not have distributed energy facilities. For this portion of the study, DOE requests public comment (in the form of case studies or similar information) depicting the effect of raterelated issues on the planning, financing, installation, commissioning or operation of DG, CHP and other distributed energy technologies. III. Public Participation A. Report DOE will make the draft report available to the public and provide an opportunity for interested parties to submit written comments on the initial conclusions reached by the study. Following the public review period, DOE will subsequently present the results of the study to the President and Congress not later than February 8, 2007, and will thereafter publish a final report. B. Submission of Comments DOE requests written comments from interested parties on all aspects of the study required by section 1817. DOE is especially interested in receiving written comments from persons with particular knowledge of the legal, economic and technical elements related to the benefits and rate-related issues concerning DG, CHP and other distributed energy technologies. Any information submitted to DOE, however, should not contain confidential, proprietary or business sensitive data. Issued in Washington, DC, on January 24, 2006.
