Description

 

The Base Interruptible Program (BIP) is intended to provide load reduction on Pacific Gas and Electric's system on a Day-of basis when the California Independent System Operator (CAISO) issues a curtailment notice. Customers enrolled in the program will be required to reduce their load down to or below its Firm Service Level (FSL). To enroll, Customers must take service on a demand time-of-use (TOU) rate schedule and have an average monthly demand of 100 kW. Base Interruptible Program Customers are given at least 30 minutes advance notice, and there is a maximum of one event per day and four hours per event. The program will not exceed 10 events per month, or 180 hours per year. The BIP may be called when CAISO has determined that a Stage 1 emergency is imminent, Stage 1, Stage 2 or Stage 3 emergency, during a transmission system contingency, or when needed based on forecasted system conditions. Once enrolled, customers may adjust their Firm Service Level (FSL) or discontinue participation once each year during the month of November. The FSL must be no more than eighty-five percent (85%) of each customer's highest monthly maximum demand during the summer on-peak and winter partial-peak periods over the past 12 months. Customers have the option to add an Under-frequency Relay (UFR) device and earn additional incentives.
