December 2, 2015, 1:30-4:30 p.m., CPUC Auditorium, 505 Van Ness Ave., San Francisco

The CPUC held a Workshop to initiate a conversation with Commissioners regarding implementation of SB 350 with a focus on the new resource optimization and integrated planning requirements established by Senate Bill (SB) 350 (De León, 2015). SB 350 enacted Public Utilities Code section 454.51, which requires the CPUC to “identify a diverse and balanced portfolio of resources needed to ensure a reliable electricity supply that provides optimal integration of renewable energy in a cost-effective manner.” SB 350 also enacted Public Utilities Code section 454.52, which requires the CPUC to establish an integrated resource planning process for regulated load-serving entities that achieves the State’s greenhouse gas emission reduction target of 40 percent below 1990 levels by 2030 while continuing to deliver safe, reliable, least-cost service to customers. A quorum of Commissioners will be present, but no voting will occur.
