California Procurement and Resource Adequacy

Utility procurement resumed in 2003 and has been guided by the biennial Long-Term Procurement Plans (LTPP) beginning in 2004 (D.04-12-048). The LTPP allows for greater head-to-head competition and provides guidelines on all-source solicitations, resolves cost recovery issues, and begins integrating renewables procurement with general procurement. Resource Adequacy promotes infrastructure investment by requiring that Load Serving Entities procure capacity so that itis available to the California Independent System Operator (CAISO) when and where needed.

Current Procurement Mix

In 2010, PG&E served 17.7% of its load with renewable energy, SCE with 19.4% and SDG&E with 11.9%.  See the RPS Compliance Reporting page for more information.

Please note: preliminary data on the 2010 RPS percentages will be available when the March RPS Compliance reports are filed.
