DG-16: If we identify a system as part of our bid, but the system does not materialize and does not begin accumulating metered deliveries by May 31, 2018, can we substitute that system?

No. While the contracts for the Distributed Generation RFP (“DG RFP”) are not yet finalized, under the terms of the current draft contracts, there is no allowance for substitution (adding a system in place of a system identified as part of a winning bid). In the case that an identified system does not materialize or accumulate metered deliveries by May 31, 2018, the Bidder would forfeit the collateral associated with the RECs from such system. Furthermore, the project would be removed from the applicable supplier contract with a utility and the maximum quantity of RECs to be delivered under the contract would be reduced accordingly.
