Proposed Standards on Smart Metering Interconnection, Net Metering, Fuels Sources, and Fossil Fuel Generation Efficiency
On August 17, 2006, Tennessee Valley Authority (``TVA'') published a notice (71 FR 47557) of the commencement of its consideration process for the Time-based Metering & Communications (hereinafter called ``Smart Metering''), Interconnection, and Net Metering standards promulgated by section 111(d) of the Public Utility Regulatory Policies Act of 1978 (Pub. L. 95-617) as amended by the Energy Policy Act of 2005 (Pub. L. 109-58) (hereinafter called ``PURPA''). This notice amends and supplements the August 17 notice to (1) set new deadlines related to the consideration of the three standards which were the subject of that notice and (2) inform the public of the commencement of TVA's consideration process for the two remaining standards listed in section 111(d) of PURPA, which are the Fuel Sources and Fossil Fuel Generation Efficiency standards. TVA will consider adopting all five of these standards for itself as well as for the distributors of TVA power and will consider these standards on the basis of their effect on conservation of energy, efficient use of facilities and resources, equity among electric consumers, and the objectives of the Tennessee Valley Authority Act. In addition, the Smart Metering standard will be considered in light of whether the benefits to the electric utility and its consumers are likely to exceed the costs of new metering and communications. Comments are requested from the public on whether TVA should adopt these standards or any variations on them.
