Document Description
The California Energy Commission proposes to modify existing regulations specifying procedures for the enforcement of the Renewables Portfolio Standard (RPS) for local publicly owned electric utilities (POUs) under Article 16 (commencing with section 399.11) of Chapter 2.3 of Part 1 of the Public Utilities Code. The proposed regulations will implement, interpret, make specific several provisions under Senate Bill (SB) 350 (Stats. 2015, ch. 547, sec. 24), SB 1393 (Stats. 2016, ch. 677), SB 100 (Stats. 2018, ch. 312, sec. 4), SB 1110 (Stats. 2018, ch. 605), and clarify existing regulatory provisions and reporting requirements. This rulemaking will update the RPS program for POUs to implement changes to RPS procurement requirements, optional compliance measures, reporting requirements, and special exemptions and exclusions. The rulemaking also updates other aspects of the program to facilitate implementation and improve clarity.
