Draft Resolution Released to Establish Disadvantaged Communities Advisory Group; Applicants Sought to Serve on Advisory Group

 

The CPUC and the California Energy Commission have released a draft proposal (called Draft Resolution) to establish and adopt a charter for a newly created Disadvantaged Communities Advisory Group, which will review and provide advice on state programs proposed to achieve clean energy and pollution reduction. 

 

The Advisory Group, which may meet as often as quarterly, will provide an annual report that lists the programs they have reviewed and their recommendations. The Draft Resolution is scheduled for a vote by the CPUC on Dec. 14, 2017, and comments will be accepted through Dec. 4, 2017.  More information is available on our website.

 

The CPUC and the Energy Commission are seeking applicants to serve on the Advisory Group.  Applications are due on Dec. 22, 2017, by 5 p.m., to: DACAG@energy.ca.gov. More information is available on our website.


Senate Bill (SB) 350, the Clean Energy and Pollution Reduction Act of 2015, requires that the CPUC and the Energy Commission create a Disadvantaged Communities Advisory Group to provide advice on programs proposed to achieve clean energy and pollution reduction.  SB 350 defines disadvantaged communities as the most burdened census tracts in California.  Relative burden is determined by review of data on 20 pollution/health and socio-economic factors.
