tep eps financing attributes
TEP EPS Financing Attributes:
  • Utility Scale PV Financial Opportunities
    • Up Front Financing matches schedule of incremental building blocks.
    • Minimum funding level of at least $5 M per year to achieve minimum cost scenarios.
    • No finance charges for high capital cost, rapidly declining cost electricity generation technology taking advantage of minimum module size available with PV.
    • Leverage of 10% of initial cost through Investment Tax Credits
    • Possible additional 18% leverage through Production Tax Credits
    • Double declining balance accelerated depreciation leverage
    • No loss of revenue from customer self generation; instead
  • Energy revenue from sale of solar energy is leveraged through investing in future PV at lower per unit cost as PV prices decline over time.
  • All energy consumers benefit in the long term.
eps future directions
EPS Future Directions:
  • 2005:
    • Customer Solar expands to 600 kWDC, SGSSS expands to 5.4 MWDC.
    • Continue wind survey data monitoring and analysis for all future years.
  • 2006:
    • Customer Solar expands to 800 kWDC, no expansion at SGSSS.
    • Expand landfill capacity to 15 MW.
  • 2007:
    • Customer Solar expands to 1,200 kWDC, SGSSS expands to 6,400 kWDC.
  • 2008:
    • Customer Solar expands to 1,600 kWDC, SGSSS expands to 7,500 kWDC.
  • 2009:
    • Customer Solar expands to 2,000 kWDC, SGSSS expands to 8,600 kWDC – final size.

solar future improvements
Solar Future Improvements:
  • Reduce Module costs
    • Thin Film Technology Development and Reliability Improvements.
    • Better efficiencies of c-si cells through new treatment and coating processes.
    • Increased annual PV module production through investment in automation.
    • Development of low cost PV grade silicon stock.
    • Development of lower cost alternate packaging materials.
    • Experience.
  • Reduce Balance of System Costs
    • Continue inverter cost reductions to or below $0.20 per Watt AC.
    • Integrated module, support and electrical design.
    • Development of USSPV size PV modules (750 W DC) – can reduce BOS costs by 33%.
  • Reduce Transaction Costs
    • Larger PV system size.
    • Sited with other utility assets to share cost of common functions.
    • Coupled with optimally sized energy storage (SMES or CAES).
    • Reduced industry overhead as experience is gained with the technology.
    • Improve system performance, reliability and longevity.
  • Reductions in all three cost factors must be achieved in a sustainable manner through balanced market growth.
