Form EIA-861S ANNUAL ELECTRIC POWER INDUSTRY REPORT (SHORT FORM) INSTRUCTIONS PURPOSE Year: 2013 OMB No. 1905-0129 Approval Expires: 12/31/2015 Burden: .75 Hours Form EIA-861S collects information on the status of selected electric power industry participants involved in the sale, and distribution of electric energy in the United States0. The data collected on this form are used to monitor the current status and trends of the electric power industry and to evaluate the future of the industry. The Form EIA-861S is to be completed by all electric utilities with annual retail sales in the prior year of 100,000 megawatt-hours or less, with the following exceptions: 1. A respondent has retail sales of unbundled service; 2. A full set of data is required from the respondent to ensure that statistical estimates for a state/sector are of acceptable quality; 3. A respondent reports in aggregate under the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) or WPPI Energy. REQUIRED RESPONDENTS Utilities for which any of the exceptions apply must complete the long version of the EIA-861 survey. Note that respondents can only complete one type of Annual Electric Power Industry Report, either the EIA-861 or the EIA-861S, but not both. Also note that responses are collected at the business (operating) level (not at the holding company level). Once every five years and in lieu of the short form, all entities that normally complete the EIA-861S will be required to complete the EIA-861. This is necessary to acquire the data needed to maintain the accuracy of the statistical imputation procedure used to estimate data not collected on the EIA-861S. As currently scheduled this requirement will not come into play for the first time until 2017. Submit the completed Form EIA-861S to the EIA by April 30th, following the end of the prior RESPONSE DUE DATE calendar year. Submit your data electronically using EIA’s secure internet data collection system (e-file). This system uses security protocols to protect information against unauthorized access during transmission.

GREEN PRICING Green Pricing Programs are Voluntary Retail Programs. They 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 or other biofuels. These programs are voluntary. Retail Customers pay an additional fee to purchase electricity generated from renewable sources. In addition, Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs), also known as green certificates, green tags, or tradable renewable certificates representing the environmental attributes of power produced from renewable energy projects may be purchased and incorporated into Green Pricing Programs. Select “Yes” or “NO” to indicate whether you had voluntary Retail Green Pricing programs during the reporting year. SCHEDULE 2. PART D. NET METERING Net Metering tariff arrangements permit a facility, 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. If your company’s net metering program included any individual facilities with a nameplate capacity of 2 MW capacity or less during the reporting year, select “YES.” If your company either (a) had no net metering program during the reporting year, or (b) all the individual facilities in program had a nameplate capacity greater than 2 MW, select “NO.” Page 3 Form EIA-861S ANNUAL ELECTRIC POWER INDUSTRY REPORT (SHORT FORM) INSTRUCTIONS Year: 2013 OMB No. 1905-0129 Approval Expires: 12/31/2015 Burden: .75 Hours SCHEDULE 4. PART A. SALES TO ULTIMATE CUSTOMERS. FULL SERVICE – ENERGY AND DELIVERY SERVICE (BUNDLED) Enter the reporting year revenues in thousands of dollars, megawatt hours of retail sales of electricity to ultimate customers, and number of customers in total by state. Note if you had energy only sales or delivery only sales then you cannot submit the short form and need email EIAemail@example.com for further help SCHEDULE 5. MERGERS AND/OR ACQUISITIONS Select “YES” or “NO” to indicate whether your company engaged in these activities during the reporting year. 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. Company-administered programs DSM programs DO NOT INCLUDE changes in energy and load attributable to: 1) Non-participants (e.g., customers known as free-riders, who would adopt program-recommended 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. Check “YES” in the space provided if your company administered Demand-Side Management Programs as described above; otherwise select “NO.” SCHEDULE 6. PART C. Time-Based Rate Programs (Dynamic Rates) 1. Please indicate, by checking “YES” or “NO”, whether your company currently operates any timebased rate programs, e.g., real-time pricing, critical peak pricing, variable peak pricing and timeof-use rates administered through a tariff Page 4 Form EIA-861S ANNUAL ELECTRIC POWER INDUSTRY REPORT (SHORT FORM) INSTRUCTIONS Year: 2013 OMB No. 1905-0129 Approval Expires: 12/31/2015 Burden: .75 Hours If you select “YES,” report by state and sector the number of customers in time-based rate programs. SCHEDULE 6. PART D. ADVANCED METERING 1. 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. 2. 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 shortdistance remote reading capabilities and communication over a fixed network such as a cellular network. 3. Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI; often referred to as “smart meters”): Meters that have the capability to measure and record usage data at hourly or shorter intervals, and have the capability to 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 two-way communication capable of recording and transmitting instantaneous data. 4. Energy Served through AMI (MWh) should be entered in megawatthours for customers served. Select “YES” or “NO” to indicate whether you operated an AMR system during the reporting year. If you select “YES,” report by state and sector the number of AMR meters Select “YES” or “NO” to indicate whether you operated an AMI system during the reporting year. If you select “YES,” report by state and sector the number of AMI meters and the energy served via AMI.
