(1) Apprentice labor credit. A utility claiming an additional credit for the electricity output from an eligible renewable resource per RCW 19.285.040 (2)(h)(i) must document that the facility commenced operation after December 31, 2005, and must provide written documentation from the Washington state apprenticeship and training council within the department of labor and industries that the facility qualified for the apprentice labor credit.
(2) Distributed generation credit. A utility claiming an additional credit for distributed generation pursuant to RCW 19.285.040 (2)(b) must meet the following requirements:
(a) The utility may claim a distributed generation credit only if the generating facility is registered in WREGIS and the utility retires all RECs associated with its distributed generation claim.
(b) In determining whether a generating facility has a generating capacity of not more than five megawatts, the capacity of the generating facility will be based on its nameplate rating measured in alternating current.
(c) In determining whether a generating facility is eligible for the distributed generation credit, the generating capacity of the generating facility will be based on the aggregate generating capacity of the generating facility and all other generating facilities in the same integrated cluster. An integrated cluster of generating facilities consists of all generating facilities that:
(i) Are located on the same or contiguous property. In determining whether properties are contiguous, interruptions in contiguity caused by easements, public thoroughfares, transportation rights of way, or utility rights of way must be disregarded; and
(ii) Have any of the following elements in common:
(A) Ownership. Each person with more than five percent beneficial ownership, other than tax equity owners, will be considered an owner for purposes of determining common ownership of generating facilities;
(B) Operational control; or
(C) Interconnection. Generating facilities have common interconnection if they have the same point of common coupling with the area electric power system.
