Based on RPS compliance filings made on August 1, 2007, California's three large IOUs collectively served 13.2% of their 2006 retail electricity sales with renewable power.
- Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) - 11.9%
- Southern California Edison (SCE) - 16.1%
- San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) - 5.3%
These percentages represent year-on-year increases in actual renewable deliveries for PG&E and SDG&E, although the growth in percentage terms is diminished because of larger-than-expected retail sales. SCE's renewable deliveries, however, decreased for the second year in a row. Fourteen contracts between IOUs and renewable generators, representing approximately 2,750 MW of renewable capacity, are currently under review at the CPUC. Among those contracts is the largest contract for wind energy ever signed by a U.S. utility, a SCE contract with Alta Windpower Development, LLC, a subsidiary of the Australian firm Allco Financial Group, Inc. for 1,500 MW of wind in the Tehachapi region. Each IOU is actively pursuing more contracts for renewable energy from the 2005, 2006, and 2007 RPS solicitations.
