Note 1: The Block/Size Group MW values are estimated using the minimum Small Block set-aside percentage (20%) of the total capacity available for each block, per DOER regulations. Up to 35% can be allocated to small systems in any given block. Therefore, depending upon demand, these values may be adjusted as the blocks fill independently of each other.
Note: 2: Allocated Capacity (MW) is the toal of Applicants that have been issued a Statement of Qualification.
Note 3: Pending Capcity (MW) is the total applications submitted but not yet approved or assigned to a block. Some of this capacity may be moved to the next Block as the current Block fills.
Note 4: Assuming that all the Pending Capacity is approved, this is the estimated Block where new applications will be assigned.
