The use of a standard capacity factor will be removed as an option for the method of production estimation used for applications in the ABP portal on November 5, 2020. After that date Approved Vendors will be able to select from the option of either a capacity factor calculated in the portal using PVWatts or proposing an alternative capacity factor. This change is being made to comport with the provisions of Section 6.14.5 of the Revised Long-Term Plan which removed references to the use of standard capacity factors (which had been an option in the Initial Long-Term Plan). This change will not impact project applications submitted prior to that date that utilized a standard capacity factor.
The removal of the standard capacity factors will become effective on November 5, 2020.
