SCHEDULE 2 - PART C: GREEN PRICING • Revenue should no longer include the base cost of electricity. It should now include only the premium paid by the retail customer. Green Pricing programs are voluntary retail programs only. Do not include mandatory wholesale purchases of RECs to meet state Renewable Portfolio Standards Green Pricing programs allow electricity customers the opportunity to purchase electricity generated from renewable resources and to pay for renewable energy development. Renewable resources include solar, wind, geothermal, hydroelectric power, and wood. Revenue should only include premium revenue from the green pricing program. Line1: Report the Total Green Pricing Revenue for customers in each customer class. Revenue should be reported in thousands of dollars to the nearest tenth (for example, $1,299 would be reported as 1.299 thousand dollars). Revenue should only include money derived from premium green pricing rate of your program. Below are two of the most common ways to calculate Total Green Pricing Revenue: Assumption: 1,000 kWh (or 1 MWh) of Green electricity sales a) An entity sells Green Energy in blocks of $2.50 per 100 kWh-block: Total cost = ($2.50/100kWh-block) x (1000 kWh) = ($0.025) X (1000 kWh) = $25.00 OR b) A Utility which sells Green Energy for a premium of $0.05 per kWh: Total cost = ($0.05/kWh) X (1,000kWh) = $50.00 Line 2: Report the Total Green Pricing Sales, the total amount of megawatthours purchased by customers for each green pricing customer class (for example, 1,299 kWh would be reported as 1.299 MWh). Line 3: Report the Total Green Pricing Customers, the number of customers who FORM EIA-861 ANNUAL ELECTRIC POWER INDUSTRY REPORT INSTRUCTIONS OMB No. 1905-0129 Approval Expires: 12/31/2015 Burden: 9.0 hrs purchased green power for each customer class. The sales volumes and the number of customers should not exceed the values reported in Schedule 4, Parts A, B, or D. The Total for each customer class will automatically sum for the electronic online efile system. SCHEDULE 2 - PART D: NET METERING Net Metering tariff arrangements permit a facility, typically generating electricity from a renewable resource, (using a meter that reads inflows and outflows of electricity) to sell any excess power it generates over its load requirement back to the electrical grid, typically at a rate equivalent to the retail price of electricity. For net metering applications of 2 MW nameplate capacity or less, report the installed net metering capacity by State, customer class and technology. Report net metering data by sector and technology type for each state. Capacity should be reported in MW as AC load capable. Example: 8 kW should be 0.008 MW. Capacities should not exceed limits set up by each state. Please provide this capacity in MW, to the nearest 0.001 MW by technology. Do not report for net metering applications larger than 2 MW. Report the number of net metering customers by customer class. They should not exceed the values in Schedule 4 Parts A and C. If you are unable to utilize the e-file system which creates the totals automatically; then provide the Totals for net metering megawatt hours, installed net metering capacity and customers by State, customer class and technology. Complete all lines for Schedule 2, Part D; if the data is available, enter the amount of electric energy sold back to the utility (MWh) SCHEDULE 3: ELECTRIC OPERATING REVENUE 1. All electric operating revenue data should be rounded to the nearest tenth and reported in thousand dollars (for example, revenue of $8,461,688.42 should be reported as 8,461.7 (thousand dollars). 2. For line 1, Electric Operating Revenue from Sales to Ultimate Customers, enter the amount of revenue from sales of electricity to those customers purchasing electricity for their own use and not for resale. Revenue reported on Schedule 4, Part C, for delivery service (and all other charges) should not be reported on Schedule 3, line 1, but should be reported in Schedule 3, line 2, Revenue from Unbundled (Delivery) Customers. This entry is gross revenue and includes the revenue from State and local income taxes, energy or demand charges, customer service charges, environmental surcharges, franchise fees, fuel adjustments and other miscellaneous charges applied to end-use customers during normal billing operations. This entry should not include deferred charges, credits, or other adjustments, such as fuel or revenue from purchased power, from previous reporting periods which are included in Schedule 3, line 4, Electric Credits/ Other Adjustments. This entry should correspond to electricity sales reported in Schedule 2, Part B, line 11. (This entry should also be the same total revenue reported on Schedule 4, column e, Parts A and B, when summed for all reported States). This entry should include all unbilled revenue resulting from power sold during the reporting period. 3. For line 2, Revenue from Unbundled (Delivery) Customers, enter the amount of revenue from unbundled customers who purchase their electricity from a supplier other than the electric utility that distributes power to their premises. This electric operating revenue does not include the charges for electric energy but does include the revenue required to cover power delivery. 4. For line 3, Electric Operating Revenue from Sales for Resale, enter the amount of FORM EIA-861 ANNUAL ELECTRIC POWER INDUSTRY REPORT INSTRUCTIONS OMB No. 1905-0129 Approval Expires: 12/31/2015 Burden: 9.0 hrs revenue from sales of electricity sold for resale purposes. This entry should include revenue from sales for resale to wholesale or retail power marketers, full and partial requirements customers (firm) and to nonrequirements (nonfirm) customers. This entry should also correspond to the sales for resale reported in Schedule 2, Part B, line 12. 5. For line 4, Electric Credits/Other Adjustments, enter the amount of deferred revenue, which corresponds to Account 449.1 of the Uniform System of Accounts including revenue not applied to end-use or resale customers during the normal billing cycle. Funds included in this entry consist of refunds to customers resulting from rate commission rulings delayed beyond the reporting year in which the funds were originally collected. Also, include revenue distributions to customers from rate stabilization funds where the distribution occurred during the current reporting year but the funds were collected during previous reporting years. 6. For line 5, Revenue from Transmission, enter the amount of revenue derived from the transmission of electricity for others (wheeling). 7. For line 6, Other Electric Operating Revenue, enter the amount of revenue received from electric activities other than selling electricity. This may include revenue from selling or servicing electric appliances, revenue from the sale of water and water power for irrigation, domestic, industrial or hydroelectric operations, revenue from electric plants leased to others, revenue from the sale of steam, but not including sales made by a steam heating department or transfers of steam under joint facility operations, revenue from interdepartmental rents or sale of electric property, revenue from late fees, penalties or reconnections, and revenue from interest. SCHEDULE 4: Sector Groupings The table below should be used as a guide for the classification of your end-use customers; pay close attention to how your consumers should be organized based on our four Sectors: Residential, Commercial, Industrial, and Transportation. Please note that data for the Transportation Sector (see definitions) has replaced the “Other” Sector on all parts of Schedule 4. Non-Transportation customers previously reported under “Other,” including street and highway lighting, should now be included in the Commercial Sector. Irrigation customers should be reported in the Industrial Sector. FORM EIA-861 ANNUAL ELECTRIC POWER INDUSTRY REPORT INSTRUCTIONS The residential sector includes private households and apartment buildings where energy is consumed primarily for: • • • • • • • space heating, water heating, air conditioning, lighting, refrigeration, cooking, and clothes drying.

Power marketers providing both energy and delivery service should report on Part D. Note: For sales to customer groups using brokers or aggregators, continue to count each customer separately. For instance, count a group of franchised commercial establishments aggregated through a single broker as separate customers (as reported in prior years). Enter the 2-letter U.S. Postal Service abbreviation for the State in which the electric sales occurred. SCHEDULE 4 - PART B: SALES TO ULTIMATE CUSTOMERS ENERGY ONLY SERVICE (WITHOUT DELIVERY SERVICE) Enter the reporting year revenue (thousand dollars, to the nearest tenth), megawatthours, and number of customers for sales of electricity to ultimate customers by State and customer class category for which your company provides only the energy consumed, where another electric utility provides delivery services, including, for example, billing, administrative FORM EIA-861 ANNUAL ELECTRIC POWER INDUSTRY REPORT INSTRUCTIONS OMB No. 1905-0129 Approval Expires: 12/31/2015 Burden: 9.0 hrs support, and line maintenance. SCHEDULE 4 - PART C: SALES TO ULTIMATE CUSTOMERS DELIVERY ONLY SERVICE (AND ALL OTHER CHARGES) Enter the reporting year revenue (thousand dollars, to the nearest tenth), megawatthours delivered, and number of customers for sales of electricity to ultimate customers in your service territory by State and customer class category for which your company provides only billing and related energy delivery services, where another company supplies the energy. SCHEDULE 4 - PART D: SALES TO ULTIMATE CUSTOMERS – BUNDLED SERVICE BY RETAIL ENERGY PROVIDERS, OR ANY POWER MARKETER THAT PROVIDES “BUNDLED SERVICE” Note: typically, the only entities that report on Schedule D are Texas Retail Energy Providers. Any other entity that believes it should report on Schedule D should first contact EIA. Enter the reporting period revenue (thousand dollars, to the nearest tenth), megawatthours, and number of customers for sales of electricity to ultimate customers by State and customer class category for whom your company provided both energy and delivery service. For public street and highway lighting, count all poles in a community as one customer. Note: For sales to customer groups using brokers or aggregators, continue to count each customer separately. For instance, count a group of franchised commercial establishments aggregated through a single broker as separate customers (as reported in prior years). Enter the twoletter U.S. Postal Service abbreviation (if not preprinted) for the State in which the electric sales occur. (Note: Texas Retail Energy Providers (REPs) should include delivery revenues.) Common Instructions: SCHEDULE 4. PARTS A, B, C, AND D 1. For column a, Residential, enter the revenue, megawatthours, and number of customers for electric energy supplied for residential (household) purposes. For the residential class, do not duplicate the customer accounts due to multiple metering for special services (e.g., water heating, etc.). 2. For column b, Commercial, enter the revenue, megawatthours, and number of customers for electric energy supplied for commercial purposes. 3. For column c, Industrial, enter the revenue, megawatthours, and number of customers for electric energy supplied for industrial purposes. 4.

SCHEDULE 5: MERGERS AND/OR ACQUISITIONS If a merger or acquisition has occurred during the reporting period, report those newlyacquired corporate entities whose operations are now included in this report. SCHEDULE 6: DEMAND-SIDE MANAGEMENT INFORMATION Demand-side management (DSM) programs are designed to modify patterns of electricity usage, including the timing and level of electricity demand. SCHEDULE 6 is divided into four FORM EIA-861 ANNUAL ELECTRIC POWER INDUSTRY REPORT INSTRUCTIONS OMB No. 1905-0129 Approval Expires: 12/31/2015 Burden: 9.0 hrs parts: Part A, Actual Effects, Part B, Annual Costs, Part C, Supplemental Information and Part D, Advanced Metering. SCHEDULE 6 is to be completed by DSM program managers (entities responsible for conducting or administering a DSM program). In previous years, companies with sales to ultimate customers or sales for resale which were less than 150,000 megawatthours were required to complete only the INCREMENTAL EFFECTS portion of Part A and annual cost to achieve in Part B, line 13, Total Cost. For this reporting year and forward, all companies including those non-utility DSM Program Managers are required to complete the entire schedule. The DSM information provided should: 1) reflect only activities that are undertaken specifically in response to companyadministered programs, including activities implemented by third parties under contract to the company; 2) account for the complete range of DSM programs, including energy efficiency and load management; and 3) represent the energy and load effects at the customer meter (i.e., transmission and distribution or reserve requirement savings should be excluded). The DSM information should exclude, to the extent possible, energy and load effects that are not attributable to DSM program activities. Non-program related effects include changes in energy and load attributable to: 1) non-participants (e.g., customers known as free-riders, who would adopt programrecommended actions even without the program); 2) government-mandated energy-efficiency standards that legislate improvements in building and appliance energy usage; 3) natural operations of the marketplace (e.g., reductions in customer energy usage due to higher prices); and 4) weather and business-cycle fluctuations. Power supply cooperatives, municipal joint action agencies, and Federal Power Marketing Administrations should coordinate the reporting of DSM information with their power purchasing utilities to avoid double counting the effects and costs of DSM programs. Utilities that have their DSM activities reported on Schedule 6 of another company should name that company in the space provided on line 2 of the schedule and proceed to Schedule 6, Part D. SCHEDULE 6 - PART A: ACTUAL EFFECTS This part of the Schedule collects information on the energy and load effects of DSM programs implemented, and measures installed, for each program category by major customer sector within a State. It is divided into two subparts, Incremental Effects and Annual Effects. Incremental Effects: are those changes in energy use (measured in megawatthours) and peak load (measured in megawatts) caused in the current reporting year by new participants in DSM programs that already existed in the previous reporting year, and all participants in your new DSM programs that existed for the first time in the current reporting year. Reported Incremental Effects should be annualized. Please leave blanks, not zeros, if the questions do not apply. For example, if your company operates industrial programs but does not expect any incremental effects in the current reporting year, the field would have a value of zero. However, if your company does not operate any industrial programs, then the field should be left blank. FORM EIA-861 ANNUAL ELECTRIC POWER INDUSTRY REPORT INSTRUCTIONS OMB No. 1905-0129 Approval Expires: 12/31/2015 Burden: 9.0 hrs Annual Effects: The total changes in energy use (measured in megawatthours) and peak load (measured in megawatts) caused in the current reporting year by all participants in all of your DSM programs. This includes new and existing participants in existing programs (those implemented prior to the current reporting year that were in place during prior reporting year), all participants in new programs (those implemented during current reporting year), and participants in programs terminated since 1992 (those effects continue even though the programs have been discontinued). DSM programs have a useful life, and the net effects of these programs will diminish over time. To the extent possible, the Annual Effects should consider the useful life of efficiency and load control measures by accounting for building demolition, equipment degradation, and program attrition. The effects of new participants in existing programs and all participants in new programs should be based on their start-up dates (i.e., if participants enter a program in July, only the effects from July to December are to be reported). If start-up dates are unknown and cannot be reasonably estimated, the effects can be annualized (i.e., assume the participants were initiated into the program on January 1). Please note that Annual Effects are not a summation of 12 monthly peaks, but are the total DSM program effects of all programs and all participants for the current reporting year. For both sections of Part A – “Annualized Incremental Effects” and “Actual Annual Effects” enter the aggregate Energy Effects (megawatthours, to one decimal point, if possible) and Actual Peak Reduction (megawatts to one decimal point, if possible) attributable to Energy Efficiency and Load Management programs under the appropriate customer sector (Residential, Commercial, Industrial, and Transportation). For Load Management on Line 5 enter the Energy Effects: on Line 6 (Potential Peak Reduction) and Line 7 (Actual Peak Reduction, enter the amount attributable to each customer sector (megawatts to one decimal point, if possible). Please leave blanks, not zeros, if the questions do not apply. For example, your company operates industrial programs but does not expect any incremental effects in the current reporting year, the field would have a value of zero. However, if your company does not operate any industrial programs, then the field should be left blank. SCHEDULE 6 - PART B: ANNUAL COSTS This part of the schedule collects information on actual DSM program costs in the current reporting year. Program costs consist of the cash expenditures, reported in thousands of dollars, incurred by the company. Costs should reflect the total cash expenditures for the year, reported in thousands of dollars that flow out to support DSM programs. They should be reported in the year they are incurred, regardless of when the actual effects occurred. For example, the cash expenditures to purchase 1,000 load control devices for installation in customers' homes could be incurred a year in advance of the actual load savings that result from operation of the devices. Annual Costs: For each State enter for each sector your actual Direct Costs, Incentive Payments, and Indirect Costs, incurred in the current reporting year. Direct Costs are those costs that are directly attributable to a particular DSM program (e.g., Energy Efficiency or Load Management). Incentives are the total financial value provided to a customer for program participation, whether cash payment, in-kind services (e.g. design work), or other benefits directly provided customer for their program participation. Indirect Costs may include other costs that have not been included in any program category, but could be meaningfully identified with operating the company’s DSM programs (e.g., Administrative, Marketing, Monitoring & Evaluation, Company-Earned Incentives, Other). Report Energy Efficiency and Load Management Costs separately. The Total Cost row, line 13 and the Total column (e) will be summed automatically for respondents that file electronically through the e-file system. Provide the actual costs breakdown in thousand FORM EIA-861 ANNUAL ELECTRIC POWER INDUSTRY REPORT INSTRUCTIONS OMB No. 1905-0129 Approval Expires: 12/31/2015 Burden: 9.0 hrs dollars. SCHEDULE 6 - PART C: SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION 1. Please indicate, by checking “Yes” or “No” on line 14, whether DSM program changes, tracking procedures, evaluations, or reporting methods have affected the data reported on this schedule (since 1992). 2. Please indicate, by checking “Yes” or “No” on line 15, whether your company currently operates any incentive-based demand response programs, i.e., direct load control, interruptible programs, demand bidding/buyback, emergency demand response, capacity market programs, and ancillary service market programs. If the answer is “Yes,” enter the number of participating customers, by state and class, on line 16. 3. Please indicate, by checking “Yes” or “No” on line 17, whether your company currently operates any time-based rate programs, e.g., real-time pricing, critical peak pricing, variable peak pricing and time-of-use rates administered through a tariff. If the answer is “Yes,” enter the number of participating customers, by state and class, on line 18. SCHEDULE 6 - PART D: ADVANCED METERING This schedule should only include customers from Schedule 4 Part A or Part C. Standard (Electric) Meters are electromechanical or solid state meters measuring aggregated kWh where data are manually retrieved over monthly billing cycles for billing purposes only. Standard meters may also include functions to measure time-of-use and/or demand with data manually retrieved over monthly billing cycles. Automated Meter Reading (AMR): Meters that collect data for billing purposes only and transmit this data one way, usually from the customer to the distribution utility. Aggregated monthly kWh data captured on these meters may be retrieved by a variety of methods including drive-by vans with short-distance remote reading capabilities and communication over a fixed network such as a cellular network. Enter the state and report the total number of AMR meters by sector. Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI): Meters that measure and record usage data at a minimum, in hourly intervals, and provide usage data to both consumers and energy companies at least once daily. Data are used for billing and other purposes. Advanced meters include basic hourly interval meters and extend to real-time meters with built-in twoway communication capable of recording and transmitting instantaneous data. Enter the state and report the total number of AMI meters by sector. For AMI meters that are only being used as AMR, report meters as AMR. Energy Served Through AMI (MWh) should be entered in megawatthours for customers served. SCHEDULE 7: DISTRIBUTED AND DISPERSED GENERATION This schedule collects information from distribution companies on industrial and commercial generators of less than 1 megawatt (1000 kilowatts) installed at or near a customer’s site, or other sites within the system. Provide all of the requested information for grid connected/synchronized distributed generators in column a, and for dispersed generators that are not grid connected/synchronized in column b. Also provide the data on all industrial and commercial dispersed generators in the Total column. Provide actual data if available, otherwise provide best estimates, and indicate the nature of the data by checking the FORM EIA-861 ANNUAL ELECTRIC POWER INDUSTRY REPORT INSTRUCTIONS OMB No. 1905-0129 Approval Expires: 12/31/2015 Burden: 9.0 hrs appropriate box on the form. Schedule 7 is intended to collect information about generators on the systems that are NOT reported on Form EIA-860, “Annual Electric Generator Report.” Plants with capacity of 1 MW or greater which ARE grid-connected, meet the threshold criteria for reporting on the 860 and as such, need not be reported on Schedule 7 of the EIA-861. Residential applications should not be reported. SCHEDULE 7 - PART A: NUMBER AND CAPACITY 1. For line 1, Number of generators, provide in column (a), the number of distributed generators in the area served by your distribution system (less than 1 megawatt). In column (b), provide the number of dispersed generators. (less than 1 megawatt). If you are unable to provide the breakout, please explain in Schedule 9 (Footnotes). 2. For line 2 "Total combined capacity" columns (a) and (b), provide the nameplate capacity (to the nearest tenth) for all generators with less than 1 megawatt that were reported on line 1. 3. For line 3, “Capacity that consists of backup-only units”, provide the total nameplate capacity of generators in columns (a) and (b) that are used only for emergency backup service. 4. For Line 4 “Capacity Owned by Respondent” provide the total nameplate capacity in columns (a) and (b) for the units listed in line 2 that the respondent owns. 5. For Line 5 “Nature of data reported” provide actual data if available, otherwise provide best estimates, and indicate the nature of the data by checking the appropriate box on the form. SCHEDULE 7 - PART B: CAPACITY BY GENERATING TYPE AND TECHNOLOGY For each of the technologies listed in columns (a) and (b), lines 1 through 8, provide the capacity. The total of lines 1 through 8 (line 9) should equal the total combined capacity in Line 2 of each column. SCHEDULE 8: DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM INFORMATION Please verify the EIA provided names of the counties, parishes, etc. (dropdown menu), by State, where your utility-owned distribution system’s electrical equipment are located. The information may have been reported by the respondent last year or the result of independent research by the EIA staff processing the Form EIA-861. If the information is incorrect, please provide the correct information in Schedule 9 (Footnotes). SCHEDULE 9: Footnotes This schedule provides additional space for comments. For clarification purposes, identify schedule, part, line number and column (if applicable) for each comment.
