RIDER MOG

MEMBER-OWNED GENERATION RIDER

EFFECTIVE DATE: April 1, 2016

AVAILABILITY

This Rider is available, on a voluntary basis and in conjunction with any of the Cooperative’s Rate

Schedules, to retail consumers located in the Cooperative’s service territory that own and operate a

generating unit(s) that can be called upon from time to time by the Cooperative’s wholesale power

supplier, as an additional generation resource. There is no minimum amount of generation or load

drop required to participate in the Cooperative’s Member-Owned Generation (MOG) Program, but

the maximum number of consumers and/or load served under this Rider may be limited by the

Cooperative’s wholesale power supplier.

In addition to the provisions of the rate schedule the consumer normally receives service under, the

following provisions shall apply:

1. Consumers served under this Rider may not use their generation for peak shaving purposes and

must agree to have their generators automatically dispatched by the Cooperative. The

Cooperative reserves the right to terminate the consumer’s contract under this rider at any time

upon written notice to the consumer. Reasons for termination include but are not limited to: a)

the consumer violates any of the terms or conditions of this Rider; b) the consumer operates its

generating facilities in a manner that is detrimental to the Cooperative or any of its consumers;

or c) fails to deliver energy to the Cooperative for two (2) consecutive months.

2. All load served under this Rider will be required to have metering that is capable of measuring

the consumer’s load in fifteen-minute intervals. If the consumer’s load is greater than 500 kW,

an additional meter on the generator will be required to verify the generation produced by the

generator during a MOG event. This meter must also be capable of capturing fifteen-minute

interval data.

3. Prior to being accepted into the MOG program, a generator must pass Automation

Qualification Test. Under this test, the Cooperative must demonstrate its ability to

automatically start and stop the consumer’s generation from a remote location and demonstrate

that it can successfully transfer the fifteen-minute interval meter data from the Cooperative’s

metering system to their power supplier’s Control Data and Settlement System (CDSS).

4. The MOG program is structured similar to a call option for power with limits on run times and

total hours of operation each year. The operating parameters include the following:

PROGRESS ENERGY CONTROL AREA:

 Minimum of sixty (60) minutes notification prior to a MOG event;

 Minimum run time of one (1) hour per unit;

 Maximum run time of eight (8) hours per unit; and

 Maximum dispatch will not exceed sixty (60) total hours per calendar year.

DUKE ENERGY CONTROL AREA:

 Minimum of sixty (60) minutes notification prior to a MOG event;

 Minimum run time of four (4) hour per unit;

 Maximum run time of six (6) hours per unit; and

 Maximum dispatch will not exceed one hundred twenty-five (125) total hours per

calendar year.

Consumer’s subscribing to the Cooperative’s MOG program must agree not to have their

generator(s) down for scheduled maintenance during the months of June, July, or August.

MONTHLY RATE

The consumer shall be billed under their applicable Rate Schedule of the Cooperative as

appropriate based upon the size of their load, plus any charges and credits outlined in this Rider:

Demand Credit: $ 4.25 per kW

Energy Credit: Calculated based on actual run time, fuel

price index, and standard heat rate.

DEMAND CREDIT

The Demand Charge Credit will be paid monthly even if the consumer’s generator is not called

upon to perform in the month the credit is being paid. The monthly demand credit is applied to be

the lesser of:

1. The Guaranteed Load Drop (GLD), which is the amount of load the generation owner

commits to remove from the Cooperative’s distribution system when a MOG event is

called; or

2. The full Nameplate Capacity of the generator.

If the actual load drop is less than 95% of the GLD during a COG event, the credit going forward

will be based on the actual amount of load dropped, unless the consumer can demonstrate through

a MOG test that the MOG can deliver the GLD amount. In this case, the Cooperative and

consumer may arrange for a test MOG event to verify the amount of load the consumer can take

off line under normal circumstances. This test will be done at the consumer’s expense. If the test

results in a deviation of more than 5% from the subscribed capacity amount, the capacity credits

for the remainder of the year will be adjusted to reflect the new subscribed amount.

ENERGY CREDIT

In the month that the consumer’s generation is used as a resource, the consumer will receive an

energy credit based upon the amount of load that was dropped due to the consumer’s generator.

For loads less than 500 kW, the energy amounts will be estimated based upon typical load curves

derived from 15-minute interval data collected from load meters for the consumer on days the

generator was not in use. For loads greater than 500 kW, metering is required and the consumer

shall be reimbursed based upon actual kWh energy that the generator produced.

The Progress Energy Control Area energy credit will be based upon a standard heat rate of 12,000

Btu/kWh and a fuel price index. The Duke Energy Control Area energy credit will be based upon

a standard heat rate of 10,000 Btu/kWh times a conversion factor of 7.22 and a fuel price index.

The fuel price index used will be the Lower Atlantic (PADD 1C) Diesel (On-Highway) Ultra Low

Sulfur as found on the EIA Petroleum and Other Liquids website

(http://www.eia.gov/petroleum/gasdiesel/) for the week the generator was dispatched.

SUBSCRIPTION PROCESS

For 2013:

There is an “Open Season” process to enroll Existing MOG. The deadline for enrolling Existing

MOG is December 12, 2012. Any MOG enrolled after that date will be considered Additional

MOG and be subject to an allocation process which limits the amount of MOG the Cooperative

may subscribe to the program.

In addition to the enrollment process, there is an Automation Qualification deadline for the remote

starting and stopping of the generator(s) and the electronic data transfer between the Cooperative’s

metering system and their wholesale power supplier’s CDSS. The deadline for the Automation

Qualification is May 1, 2013.

For generators enrolled by December 12, 2012, REMC will begin receiving capacity credits

beginning on the January 2013 bill, which will be rendered in February. If the generator(s) has not

yet passed the Automation Qualification the consumer must work with the Cooperative in

developing a written Manual Dispatch Plan to be used until the Automation Qualification is

completed.

For 2014 and beyond:

Consumers wishing to enroll or remain in the program must notify the Cooperative by October 15

of each year for the upcoming calendar year. Each new generator being subscribed to the program

must demonstrate Automation Qualification by December 1, in order to participate in the program

in the upcoming year.

SUBSCRIPTION ADJUSTMENTS

If a consumer currently in the Cooperative’s MOG Program wishes to adjust the amount they have

subscribed to the program there will be only one opportunity per year to increase the capacity

subscribed and multiple opportunities to decrease their subscribed amount. Consumers wishing to

increase their subscription amount must notify the Cooperative prior to October 15 for the

upcoming calendar year. Increases will take effect in January of the following year. Depending

upon the Cooperative’s allocation from their wholesale power supplier, the Cooperative may or

may not be able to grant the request for increases in the amount of generation the consumer wishes

to add to the program. Requests will be handled on a first-come first-serve basis. If the

Cooperative is unable to meet the request, the consumer will be notified by November 15.

If the consumer wishes to decrease their subscription amount, the consumer may notify the

Cooperative prior to October 15 of any year that they wish to withdraw or subscribe a lesser

amount of MOG for the upcoming calendar year. If during the commitment year, the consumer

realizes they cannot meet their full obligation; their Guaranteed Load Drop can be adjusted by

providing 30 days written notice to the Cooperative.

FAILURE TO PERFORM

Consumers participating in the Cooperative’s MOG program who fail to deliver energy for two

consecutive control months* in the same calendar year due to equipment failure will be removed

from the program. Members who have been removed may re-enter the MOG program the

following year upon demonstrating adequate performance reliability and re-establishing their GLD,

provided the Cooperative has adequate capacity allocation from their wholesale supplier.

Members wishing to re-enter must notify the Cooperative prior to October 15 for the upcoming

calendar year. Members being reinstated will begin receiving credits in January of the following

year.

* Control month: a month in which the member’s generator is used as a resource.

SALES TAX

All rates are subject to North Carolina Sales Tax.

RIDER REPS/EE-2016/17

RENEWABLE ENERGY AND ENERGY EFFICIENCY PORTFOLIO STANDARD

RIDER

EFFECTIVE DATE: May 1, 2016

APPLICABILITY

Service under this Rider is applicable to all retail consumers of the Cooperative for the recovery

of the Cooperative’s incremental costs associated with meeting their Renewable Energy Standard

Portfolio (REPS) pursuant to North Carolina General Statute 62-133.8 and NCUC Rule R8-67,

along with costs related to the Cooperative’s demand-side management and energy efficiency

(EE) programs pursuant to North Carolina General Statute 62-133.9 and NCUC Rule R8-68.

This Rider only applies to the Cooperative’s demand-side management and energy efficiency

programs that were implemented after January 1, 2007 and have been approved by the North

Carolina Utilities Commission (NCUC). The REPS and EE rates shown in this Rider are not

included in the Cooperative’s individual retail rate schedules and therefore, will be applied to the

bill as calculated under the applicable rate.

The provisions of the Schedule with which this Rider is used are modified only as shown herein.

Service rendered under this Rider is subject to the provisions of the Cooperative’s Service Rules

and Regulations on file with the state regulatory commission.

MONTHLY RATE

In addition to all other charges stated in the Monthly Rate of the Schedule with which this Rider

is used, the following charges shall also apply:

Total

Service Rates REPS Rate EE Rate Monthly Rate

Residential $ 0.51 $ 0.06 $ 0.57

Commercial $ 2.27 $ 1.95 $ 4.22

Industrial $ 15.13 $ 1.95 $ 17.08

GENERAL PROVISIONS

The REPS Rate shown above shall be adjusted annually to reflect the incremental and development

costs the Cooperative anticipates incurring for the upcoming year to comply with the North

Carolina Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Portfolio Standard, plus any historical

differences between reasonably and prudently incurred REPS costs and REPS revenues realized

divided by the weighted number of consumers projected in each revenue class over the same

twelve month period.

The EE Rate shown above shall be adjusted annually to reflect the Cooperative's budgeted costs

for demand-side management and energy efficiency programs to be implemented in the

upcoming year, plus any historical differences between reasonably and prudently incurred EE

program costs and EE revenues realized, plus projected net lost revenues resulting from the EE

programs divided by the weighted number of consumers projected in each revenue class over the

same twelve month period. Net lost revenues are revenue losses, net of the Cooperative’s marginal

costs avoided at the time of the lost kilowatt hour sale(s). Upon implementation, net lost revenues

associated with each program will be recovered for the estimated life of the energy efficiency

measure, except that the recovery of net lost revenues will end upon implementation of new rates

approved by the Cooperative’s Board of Directors based on a fully allocated Cost-of-Service

Study or comparable proceeding.

OPT OUT PROVISION FOR QUALIFYING NON-RESIDENTIAL CONSUMERS

The EEA increment applicable to Energy Efficiency Programs and/or Demand-Side Management

Programs will not be applied to the consumer charge of the applicable rate schedule for

commercial/industrial consumers qualified to opt out of the programs. Consumers choosing to

opt out of the programs must:

1. Certify or attest to the Cooperative that it has, or has plans for implementing alternative

energy efficiency measures in accordance with quantifiable goals that meet or exceed the

Cooperative’s annual system-wide energy savings goals and

2. Have an electric service agreement that states that:

a. The establishment is classified as a “manufacturing industry” by the Standard

Industrial Classification Manual published by the United States government and

where more than 50% of the electric energy consumption of such establishment is

used for its manufacturing processes, or

b. The consumer’s annual energy use is anticipated to be 1,000,000 kilowatt hours or

more.

The following additional provisions apply for qualifying consumers who elect to opt out:

• Qualifying consumers may opt out of the Cooperative’s energy efficiency programs.

• The Consumer may not opt of the Cooperative’s individual energy efficiency programs.

The choice to opt out applies to the Cooperative’s entire portfolio of energy efficiency

programs.

• If a consumer elects to participate in an energy efficiency program, the consumer may not

subsequently choose to opt out of the program for a period of five (5) years or the life of

the applicable measure, whichever is longer.

SALES TAX

All rates are subject to North Carolina Sales Tax.
