E3 created a public tool to evaluate the impacts of a successor to the existing net energy metering (NEM) tariff for eligible renewable customer-generators for the CPUC. The tool was created in response to Assembly Bill (AB) 327 (Perea) that directs the Commission to develop a standard tariff or contract for renewable customer-generators that ensures that customer-sited renewable generation continues to grow sustainably and that the total benefits to all customers are approximately equal to the total costs.

The Public Tool produces SPM cost-test results and distributed energy resource (DER) adoption forecasts under different user-defined policy scenarios, rate designs, and NEM successor tariffs.
