SCEF SUBSCRIBER BENEFITS
The SCEF program is a six-year effort that will provide under-served customers with an opportunity to benefit from in-state clean energy projects.
The SCEF Subscriber Tariff Rider will be available to eligible customers when selected projects achieve commercial operation.
What is the expected timeline for the SCEF program?
The program is scheduled to begin soliciting for projects that will result in on-bill credits to qualified customers by the end of April, 2020. The first projects are expected to be constructed and operational sometime after July 2021, meaning customers will begin to see benefits from the SCEF program around this time.
What types of customers may benefit from the SCEF program?
The legislation that created the SCEF program provided that the program should serve the following types of electric customers:
- Low-income Customers,
- Moderate-income Customers,
- Small Business Customers,
- State or municipal Customers,
- Commercial Customers, and;
- Residential Customers, other than Low to Moderate income (“LMI”) Customers, who either: (1) reside in a rental or leased property, or a property where the Customer does not control the property’s roof, such as a multi-unit condominium; or (2) reside in their own property, but have written documentation from a rooftop solar installer that they are unable to install solar panels on their roof.
Definitions of these customer types can be found in the Subscriber Terms and Conditions document.
What benefits will Subscribers receive?
Eligible subscribers will receive a credit on their monthly bill equal to $0.025 multiplied by their average monthly usage for twenty years. Average monthly usage will be calculated based on the historic average annual electric use at the premises over the last 12 months. For example, a customer whose average monthly usage is 700 kW will receive a credit of $17.50 per month for twenty years, subject to the Subscriber Terms and Conditions.
