Incentive/Summary Docket No. 4822 was enacted by the Georgia
Docket No. 4822 was enacted by the Georgia Public Service Commission in accordance with The Public Utility Regulatory Policies Act of 1978 (PURPA) that was enacted to promote conservation and to encourage use of alternative sources of power generation. PURPA established a class of non-utility generators comprised of small power producers and cogenerators, referred to as Qualifying Facilities (QFs). Docket No. 4822, and subsequently Docket No. 19279, approved methodologies for full-avoided cost payments made by Georgia Power Company (GPC) to QFs pursuant to PURPA. Avoided costs are the “incremental costs to an electric utility of electric energy or capacity or both which, but for the purchase from the qualifying facility or qualifying facilities, such utility would generate itself or purchase from another source”. Standard firm (average capacity factor of at least 90%) and non-firm (energy only) contracts were established for QFs up to 80 MWs. Capacity payments are determined by the needs stated in the Integrated Resource Plan (IRP). RFPs are conducted to address the capacity needs. Commission Rule 515-3-4-.04(3)(f) exempts QFs up to 30 MWs from having to bid into RFPs. Instead, QFs must notice in to receive a proxy-price set by the last winning bidder of the RFP. QFs must operate at 96% availability to receive the proxy-price. QFs shall bear the cost of interconnections and any resulting changes to the transmission system.
