  10. State of Solar Energy in Sonoma County Paths to Accelerate Adoption Prepared for the Center for Climate Protection By Chris Cone Consulting

  11. Sonoma County Solar Metrics KW MW Installed Since Local Solar Installed 1999 Market Share per Capita 95.6 Megawatts 40 percent 2nd in Bay Including 38 MW kW installed / jobs Area by local solar vendors created 22nd in State 2,763 Metric Tons CO 2 e emissions eliminated by local solar generation Kilowatt (kW); Megawatt (MW, 11 1,000 kW)

  12. Key Policy Drivers Investment Tax Credit • (Federal, 1978 to Present) Net Energy Metering • (State, 1996 to Present) Community Choice • Aggregation (State, 2002 to Present) California Solar Initiative • (State, 2007 to 2016+) PACE Financing • (State 2009 to Present) 12

  13. Key Concepts Distributed Energy Resources (DER) includes distributed renewable generation (solar, wind), energy efficiency, energy storage, electric vehicles, and smart controllers that can be installed locally and in combination to meet onsite energy needs and reduce or manage electric grid demand. Solar+ Solar+ is a business model that combines the above DER technologies to make solar energy generated onsite available during dawn and evening hours — when most people use grid power — to reduce the strain on the electrical grid and avoid Time-of-Use rates.

  14. Key Concepts Community Choice Agency (CCA) is a local governmental agency charged with providing clean energy choice and affordable electricity rates through its electricity purchasing authority. Integrated DER (IDER ) is a California policy strategy that provides comprehensive building energy management solutions to facilitate customer Source: LEAN Energy USA behavior changes that reduce electricity demand and grid inefficiencies. 14

  16. Findings Local Solar Industry CCAs, Local Government • Progressive state policies Local governments deliver • support local solar investment “added value” via land use and transportation planning • Strong local leadership fosters authority market barrier solutions Local public/private partners can • (e.g., uniform permitting/ collaborate to identify, map, and building code, PACE financing) integrate Solar+ projects • Local solar provides platform Community Choice Agency can • for Solar+ deployment reimagine business model with diverse suite of Solar+ services 16

  17. Findings Dynamic Market Local Team Advantage • CPUC has eight (8) • Optimizing Solar+ regulatory proceedings opportunities requires local addressing Solar+ rates, partnerships: planning, and grid upgrades Community Choice Energy o • CAISO grid operator agency developing wholesale Local governments o markets for renewable Associated agencies o generation and aggregated Local solar industry o DERs Community stakeholders o California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) California Independent System Operator (CAISO) 17

  18. CCA Role in Solar+ IDER Deployment Recommendation #1 — CCA Business Model Innovation Identify opportunities for business model innovation/IDER- related services, such as: Serve as a liaison between IOU/CAISO and local governments; serve as consultant on community project designs that address local needs; and develop wholesale distributed generation projects and other aggregated IDER services that will provide CCE revenue. Recommendation #2 — State IDER Advocacy Engage in direct advocacy with State legislators and CPUC IDER and related regulatory proceedings (with assigned regulatory staff) in coordination with CalCCA to ensure CCAs lead the discussion and definition of their role in IDER deployment. 18

  19. Local Solar+ IDER Deployment Strategy Recommendation #3 — Map IDER Sites Map IDER sites, assess their grid and local value, reward beneficial projects, define how CCA can speed Solar+ development. Recommendation #4 — Local IDER Priorities Identify local planning tools to support IDER; establish Solar+ affordable housing protocols; apply IDER to emergency preparedness; identify IDER zoning strategies. Recommendation #5 — Local IDER Deployment Plan Prepare Solar+ IDER deployment plan using Recommendation #3 map tools. Recommendation #6 — Evaluation/Monitoring Platform Establish CCA-based metering platform to support IDER planning/deployment. Recommendation #7 — Solar+ IDER Retrofit Incentive Incentivize adding IDER equipment to existing solar PV installations. 19

  20. Fuel Switching Opportunities Recommendation #8 — Building Electricity Conversion Establish a comprehensive fuel switch incentive program for high- efficiency electric appliances and systems that are not eligible for, and/or in addition to CPUC incentives. Recommendation #9 — Vehicle Electricity Conversion Administer a comprehensive program to help customers charge their EVs when solar electricity is readily available or overall demand is low Recommendation #10 — Workplace EV Charging Collaborate to site and fund daytime workplace EV charging stations at employer and business centers and co-locate charging stations with Solar+ IDER energy storage. Recommendation #11 — Solar Parking Canopy Initiative Establish a solar parking canopy initiative, collaborating with prospective host sites, project developers, equipment manufacturers. 20

  21. Financing Platform Recommendation #12 — On-Bill Repayment Platform Establish a CCA on-bill repayment platform in collaboration with incumbent IOU and financial institutions to host a range of qualified financing providers with the option to tie payments to grid-performance results of Solar+ IDER measures. Solar+ IDER Value Proposition Recommendation #13 — Solar+ Business Model Support local solar vendors seeking to expand their business model and apply their proven sales approach to a new value proposition offering Solar + services to new customers and revisiting former customers with Solar+ enhancements. 21

  22. Key Takeaways • Solar provides a thriving platform for the emergence of distributed energy resources (DER) (storage, efficiency, demand response) • Solar+ IDER turns solar into a service that improves grid reliability • Solar+ IDER expands local economic, environmental, and community benefits • Community Choice Agencies can lead Solar+ IDER adoption and ensure it aligns with community goals 22
