The Public Utility Regulatory Policies Act of 1978 ("PURPA") requires utilities to interconnect with and purchase power from Qualifying Facilities ("QFs") at rates that do not exceed SDG&E's avoided cost. QFs are non-utility generators who use many types of technologies such as cogeneration, bio-gas, bio-mass, geothermal, hydroelectric, wind, solar, photovoltaic, etc. SDG&E has many QFs interconnected to its electric grid and purchases energy and capacity from many of them. SDG&E pays for this energy and capacity at prices approved by the California Public Utilities Commission. These prices are known as SDG&E's Short Run Avoided Costs ("SRAC").

SDG&E Bidding Process
SDG&E has requested bids for energy from prospective suppliers to assist in stabilizing energy costs for SDG&E customers. There are no bids at this time.

This report is published monthly and summarizes SDG&E's SRAC paid to QFs.
