OG&E has applied to the Oklahoma Corporation Commission
to levy four new tariffs
to residential and business customers
who have solar panels.
The proposed residential TOU tariff (R-TOU-kW) includes a monthly customer charge ($18.00), a demand charge ($2.68/kW), on-peak ($0.173/kWh) and off-peak energy charges ($0.0137/kWh), and fuel charges.
The proposed commercial TOU tariff (COM-TOU-kW) includes a monthly customer charge ($34.75), a demand charge ($3.30/kW), on-peak ($0.1875/kWh) and off-peak energy charges $0.0143/kWh), and fuel charges.
In addition, if the customer generates more solar power
than they use that month,
they will not receive any compensation
for net access. (This is also true of Kay Rural Electric cooperative,
which services Turtle Rock Farm,
where both of our houses have solar panels.)
The Oklahoma legislature made this tariff possible
by passing packaged legislation presented by ALEC
last legislative session. One U.S. utility company,
has already levied demand charges on solar customers.
