NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
The purpose of this activity is to revide guidelines previously adopted by the California Energy Commission to govern the certification of renewable energy resources eligible to satisfy the State's Renewable Portfolio Standard. The revisions clarify the type of information that may be submitted by municipal solid waste conversion facilities to apply for certification under the guidelines. The California Energy Commission, operators and developers of renewable energy resources, including municipal solid waste conversion facilities, and electric utilities that procure electricity from these renewable energy resources benefit from the adoption of these guidelines.
