4901:1-10-35 Disclosures of renewable energy resource, energy efficiency, and peak demand reduction compliance costs.

(A) For purposes of this rule, the following definitions shall apply:

(1) "Energy efficiency" has the meaning set forth in paragraph (N) of rule 4901:1-39-01 of the Administrative Code.

(2) "Renewable energy resource" has the meaning set forth in division (A)(37) of section 4928.01 of the Revised Code.

(B) Each electric distribution utility (EDU) shall list on all customer bills sent by the EDU, the individual customer cost of compliance for paragraphs (B)(1), (B)(2), and (B)(3) of this rule for the applicable billing period. Consolidated bills set by the EDU, which include supplier charges, shall include the EDU's individual customer cost of compliance for paragraphs (B)(1), (B)(2) and (B)(3) of this rule for the applicable billing period.

(1) The renewable energy resource requirement under section 4928.64 of the Revised Code. This cost shall be calculated as the sum of the following:

(a) The customer's usage in megawatt-hours for the applicable billing period, multiplied by the statutory solar percentage requirement pursuant to division (B)(2) of section 4928.64 of the Revised Code for the year in which the bill is issued, multiplied by the average of the Ohio solar and other solar renewable energy credit (REC) costs for EDUs as reported in the commission's most recent compliance report provided to the general assembly; and

(b) The customer's usage in megawatt-hours for the applicable billing period, multiplied by the statutory non-solar percentage requirement pursuant to division (B)(2) of section 4928.64 of the Revised Code for the year in which the bill is issued, multiplied by the average of the Ohio non-solar and other non-solar REC costs for EDUs as reported by the commission's most recent compliance report provided to the general assembly. The statutory non-solar requirement shall equal the total statutory renewable requirement net of the solar requirement.

(c) In the event that the commission's compliance report provided to the general assembly does not include separate REC costs for Ohio and other resources, the EDU solar and EDU non-solar REC costs as presented in the report should be inserted into the calculation where applicable.

(2) The energy efficiency savings requirements under section 4928.66 of the Revised Code. This cost shall be calculated as follows:

(a) The customer's usage in kilowatt-hours for the applicable billing period multiplied by the currently effective energy efficiency/peak demand reduction rider that is applicable to the customer, exclusive of any amounts related to collection of lost distribution revenue.

(b) The amount from paragraph (B)(2)(a) of this rule shall be multiplied by the proportion of the energy efficiency/peak demand reduction rider that is associated with energy efficiency savings requirement compliance costs. For purposes of calculating this proportion, all costs represented in the energy efficiency/peak demand reduction rider shall be allocated either to energy efficiency requirements compliance or peak demand reduction requirements compliance. Alternatively, the EDU may multiply the amount from paragraph (B)(2)(a) of this rule by eighty per cent.

(3) The peak demand reduction requirements under section 4928.66 of the Revised Code. This cost shall be calculated as follows:

(a) The customer's usage in kilowatt-hours for the applicable billing period shall be multiplied by the currently effective energy efficiency/peak demand reduction rider that is applicable to the customer, exclusive of any amounts related to collection of lost distribution revenue.

(b) The amount from paragraph (B)(3)(a) of this rule shall be multiplied by the proportion of the energy efficiency/peak demand reduction requirement rider that is associated with peak demand reduction requirements compliance costs. For the purpose of calculating this proportion, all costs represented in the energy efficiency/peak demand reduction rider shall be allocated either to the energy efficiency requirements compliance or peak demand reduction requirements compliance. Alternatively, the EDU may multiply the amount from paragraph (B)(3)(a) of this rule by twenty per cent.

(4) Each of these costs shall be listed on each customer's monthly bill as a distinct line item.
