Reading the nem2-mt, should like any with solar and or batteries would be on this plan?The information a PG&E representative gave me 2.5 years ago, and which may not be accurate, was that NEM-MT vs NEM-PS was a billing issue, not a regulatory issue. There are different regulatory categories more finally divided than NEM-MT vs NEM-PS. For example, my interconnection agreement is limited to 10 kW of storage, or 2 Powerwalls.

here is complete form
good point. Anywhere it says you PW's cannot be charged from grid?
The way I am reading this is we do not have any storage/battery that is NEM eligible. So, with no storage, then section I would not seem to apply.That's page 27 (Appenidix I) of the PDF you linked. If the first box is checked technically you can't grid-charge. I'm trying to get the form completed with the second box checked which just limits grid charging to non-peak times.

just makes no sense when the PW's are not generatorsThanks Wayne.
For reference, I pasted the image of table 11.2 from the PDF you cited below.
It seems like any reasonable PV + Tesla Powerwall installation is going to fall under this new NEM2-MT instead of NEM2-PS. Even though there's a thin window to get a NEM2-PS to work, it may require that NGOM compliance or non-export relay installed. And I feel like PG&E isn't ready quite yet to grant blanket exemptions for Tesla Powerwalls for this PS-compliance.
So, assuming I do have to use NEM2-MT (boooo), I haven't been able to get any explanations from Sunrun or PG&E regarding:
1) Whether there is a $800 interconnection fee today
2) Who pays this the interconnection fee if it is $800 instead of $145
3) Whether there are any other one-time tariffs or fees
4) What the impact is to the recurring NBC's on each monthly statement or NEM true-up for people on Mt vs PS
5) Whether I'm supposed to disclose the Powerwalls under the NEM2-MT form section 2.7 as "exporting equipment"
6) Whether I'm allowed to check the second box under Appendix I in the NEM2-MT form
7) Whether I really need to add PG&E to my homeowners insurance
The other stupid thing about the table below is that it's for systems that are not "100% REGF Charged" a Renewable Electrical Generation Facility = (REGF). So 99.999% of the time my Powerwalls will be REGF and only take power from my solar. In the 0.0001% of the time that a Stormwatch comes in, then yeah, it'll take power from the grid.

I don't quite follow--the hardware is capable of exporting to the grid. The only thing stopping it from doing so is software.
