    Regional Dialogue Exhibit H Resources
    Pursuant to section 2 of Exhibit H of the Regional Dialogue Agreements, BPA is providing the following as the list of resources with Western Renewable Energy Generation Information System (WREGIS) Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) associated with them that will be included in the Tier 1 REC inventory:

  • Foote Creek I
  • Stateline
  • Condon
  • Klondike I
  • Klondike III
  • Grand Coulee Efficiency Upgrades (effective November 2013)
  • Bonneville Efficiency Upgrades (effective June 2014)
  • Chief Joe (effective January 1, 2015)
  • Cougar (effective January 1, 2015)

  • Descriptions for the wind products can be found on the Wind Power page

    1. Ashland Solar and Foote Creek II were included on the version of the list above that appeared in Exhibit H of the Regional Dialogue Agreements as of the Effective Date of those Agreements. Ashland Solar has been removed from the current list and will not be included in Tier 1 REC inventory until further notice because it is not metered separately from the host load, is not registered with WREGIS, and therefore does not have WREGIS RECs associated with it. BPA's contract with Foote Creek II expired June, 2014.

    Western Renewable Energy Generation Information System (WREGIS) Bonneville joined WREGIS as Qualified Reporting Entity in May 2008 and as a Marketer in June 2008. The executed WREGIS TOU Agreement associated with BPA's power marketing function is incorporated by reference in related customer contracts and is being provided here for customer reference.

Conservation Billing Credits    (Top)

During the Bonneville Power Administration's Energy Efficiency Post-2011 Review process customers expressed an interest in pursuing independent conservation activities that were not dependent on funding through the Energy Efficiency Incentive. In response, BPA proposes to offer conservation billing credits consistent with section 6(h) of the Pacific Northwest Electric Power Planning and Conservation Act of 1980. The program would focus on independent conservation activities by BPA customers and their potential to reduce the Administrator's need to acquire other conservation resources. BPA plans to begin offering billing credits in October 2015.

BPA is accepting comments about the proposed change to the billing credit policy and the proposed billing credit contract language until Nov. 14, 2014. All comments received will be posted on the comment website.

BPA will publish a Billing Credits Record of Decision in late 2014 and will describe any changes from these initially published documents. BPA is targeting signing contracts with customers for Billing Credits by the end of March and beginning to implement Billing Credits in October 2015.
